Excess chlorine?!?!??

I swim daily at my job currently.
When I do tank maintenance like scraping some bits of algea or removing uneaten food. Could I be contaminating the water with excess chlorine? I always shower before messing with the tank I'm just worried
Both of my clown fish have died in the last week with no evidence of nitrates or anything else on my water test?!?!?????

If you wash your hands you should be fine.

I've had two fish die in the last week?!
Tank is total of 34 gallons
29 tank
5 filter
Temp has been fluctuating between 78-82
Ammonia 0
Nitrite0
Nitrate less than 5ppm ( I don't wanna say zero bc I feel like there's always going to e some)
SG was 1.026
Not sure of my calcium or phosphate levels.
I have phosphate media but I'm not currently using it.
Lights are two 55 watt compact flourescent 50/50 bulbs
On from 1000 to 2000
I just can't figure it out.

What other fish are in the tank? Did the clowns look faded or healthily?

There are 5 hermits an emerald crab 2 turbo snails 2 nasaraeriaois or whatever snails. And one flame angel.
They didn't look faded at all! Colors were bright and they didn't act abnormal. I just came home to dead fish

If the inverts are fine, there is no chlorine in the water.
