You should post this in the 'Coral' section
This thread is not relevent to your dilemma

Go to Reef, and find the Coral sub-thread at the top left of the page

I had read this before on different forums but just ignored it like most people thinking it can't be that bad.
I had 2 scrapes on my hand and I went to pick up big frogspawn coral that had fallen down next to Anenome. I don't know if one or both got me but that was painful lesson. It hurt for days. The cut where the skin was off from didn't heal fully for a month.
learned to listen to other hobbyist when they tell u something.

Bought the 20$ coralife gloves the same week .

In my EMS education and Dive training (rescue diver and Divemaster cert) both talk about treating jellyfish stings with warm salt water or distilled white vinegar to neutralize the sting. Then using salt water and baking soda mixed into a paste and smeared all over the site then scraped off to help remove stingers.
Calamine lotion, Benadryl (the liquid oral stuff can be smeared topically as well) and ibuprofen can help decrease the after effects of stings/pain.

Of course always seek medical assistance as a CYA...

and have to be careful with nitrile gloves, due to their permeability can only be worn for so many minutes before they start to break down and decrease effectiveness as a barrier device (will have to ask the clinical educator I spoke with for the AHS documents on this). I believe for medical purposes, we are told to change our gloves after 8 mins as they are not effective at protection (especially when dealing with contagious bodily fluids). Double gloving does not prevent/decrease this process either.
(interesting right?!)

Depending on the type of gloves you use they are said to be good for approx 20 minutes. If you double glove that cuts your time in half due to the heat, moisture and increased tension.

Remember all our gloves have micro tears and through moving stretching and heat these slowly fracture and become bigger. Always good Practise to wash hands after.

Not an animal living in our tanks but watch out for electricity....Got a pretty good scare the other day when I stuck my hand in the tank and I could feel it. Not a strong shock more like an irritant and then the breaker blew in the house. Looked in my sump after and a heater was filled with water so it must have failed because I had vinegar bathed my return pump and was moving rock around in the sump and must have damaged it. Thinking I will get a volt meter to test water prior to sticking my hands in the tank going forward.
A GFI (believe that's what there called) would be very beneficial to every reef keeper as well.
Maybe its common sense that electricity and water don't mix but its something I stopped thinking about after the couple years I have been in the hobby.
