Oh yeah I am strict about washing up after. Thanks!

The only chemical I use is prime, so I think I'm in good shape! Good luck finding her lol

Thank you! I know you can call the CDC and check the classifications on just about anything, I'll definitely do that.

When I was pregnant with my two year old we had several reptiles for pets, they always told me no handling for salmonella concerns. I am glad you mentioned that, I completely forgot.

Thanks everybody, we are excited!

Not sure how big your tank is but, get you a pair of arm-length gloves, a 55 gallon Rubbermaid trash can with wheels and a small pond pump with hose. This will give extra protection to you and you can pre-treat the water before it goes into in the tank and all your hubby has to do is push the barrel to the tank for you. As far a chemicals so, just use them in a well ventilated area and wear your gloves when using them. And congrats on the future bundle of joy!
