Many of my scaly friends from my original tank from 2011 have passed, except for two! I am in the process of re-doing my tank. :)

Lol, that sucks, you become allergic to something that is part of your job. Allergic to live fish, that is a new one.

well it is similar to people being allergic to shellfish... some can be allergic to fish over all including live fish :o which WOULD suck.

Breed for the breed, not for the money; the words any REAL breeder would understand.

You must know nothing in order to know all, for all is nothing and nothing is for all.

How interesting that I'd stumble upon this, while I'm having an allergic reaction to the bloodworms I just ground up for the fry haha. How interesting, I thought I was just weird, I'm glad I'm not the only one who has the same allergy. I discovered this allergy years ago, and I hoped it had subsided. Apparently it hasn't LOL

yeah what's recommended is gloves (surgical for instance :) ), and using spoons rather than fingers :3

For grinding them, I was using an old medicine bowl/grinder thingy haha. Very handy! Unfortunately the fine powder got in my nose >:( lmao

It is possible I guess,anything is. I am not allergic to fish normally,but I guess I could of developed an allergy? I have not had it happen since though.

As a person who has suffered allergys for twenty years I can tell you that you can develop an allergy at the drop of a hat. Allergys are known to develop and go away every seven years. Or, like almost everyone else said. Could be a chemical that was little stronger than you were used too. from my experience you probably had a reaction to ammonia. My fiance worked around manure for a long time and would come home with the itchies and stuffy nose. Ammonia is bad stuff for fish and people.

Keep yourself clean and bright, for you are the window through which you must see the world.

Cool

If you read the info. on the freezedried blood worms, it says something about not handling the worms and to wash hands with soap and water afterwards.

I saw a program on tv. a while ago about a man who had a small cut on his knuckle and one day after years of cleaning and looking after his saltwater hobby he developed a nasty, nasty infection from the water... yikes.... I have seen those gloves that go up to the armpit in my lfs... hmmmm.
