As a noob I'm really glad you guys posted this! What type of gloves are we talking about? i.e. How thick, and if I'm moving rocks and coral to a new tank, should I wear eye protection?

The shoulder length gloves tend to be very thick. If you are dealing with rock with bristle worms in them, those should be used., or at least those Playtex ones.
If you are setting up a tank with new rock, you're ok with the standard latex (powder free!) or nitrile ones. A not overly tight rubber-band around the wrist is helpful.


Eye protection - yes..and don't keep your mouth open either...most especially if you are dealing with any zoas or palys!
