Those coralife gloves remove all sense of touch from your hands which is why I don't like it. A better option would be to use doctor examination gloves which are powder free. $10 for 100 pairs.

same here...add a thick rubber band (from the junk mail) around the wrist to keep water from getting in. Trash it when done!

How about these 12" Extended Cuff?
Or do you have something better in mind? - I really need some! - Let's do a group buy.
Oh yeah. I already have aqua gloves (red and blue ones) and I don't like them since I can't grab to thin hairy stuff in my tank in them!

i had an incident the other night. my peppermint shrimp was in my overflow box,and could not get him out, so i stop the u tube flow and dumped him back in tank, but i had too start the u tube sipon again with the air hose, i attached a longer air hose so i wouldn't get any tank water in my mouth, well any way i did get it in my mouth, and in a couple of minutes, i got dizzy,faint, and very hard too breath, then was hot and cold. this lasted about 2 hr's. i was so close to going to emergency room. well any ways i waited it out and feel fine, but was very scary. i'll never be doing that again.

Don't know if this is good advice or bad.......probably bad.

About 10 years ago I worked at Jordan's Lobster in Sheepshead Bay. We always would get punctures from lobster spines (ones under the nail really hurt:grumpy:). We would pour bleach into the puncture as soon as it happened. The puncture would hurt for maybe an hour or so, then the pain would always go away. When I didn't do this, the pain would last for days.

This probably wouldn't help since we're dealing with venom/other toxic chemicals in corals. We would probably be better off calling poison control (800-222-1222).

PS......Lionfish stings really really hurt:eek:.
