Saltwater Tank Gloves

Hi,

I am looking for a pair of gloves that I can use in my SW tanks, are there any that you all recommend? I would prefer them to be tall as one of my tanks is a 125g.

Sounds to me like you just need a pair of waders.

The two docs used to offer a pair of gloves that went to the shoulder specifically for saltwater tanks. Don't know if they still do or not, as I found them very annoying and never bought any after the first pair.

Sometimes the introduction of chemicals or unwanted things from your hands can be a major issue, especially in a small tank. Additionally, some people have major allergic reactions to some of the chemicals given off by creatures we keep in salt tanks.
