Using gloves while cleaning tank

As a organ transplant patient, it is a constant struggle to stay away from bacteria and infections. My transplant team wasn't happy to learn of my new fish tank and said I MUST wear protective gloves when cleaning the tank. Does anyone know of any gloves that won't hurt my fish and protect me as well?

Thanks so much
Lori

These may be a little heavy duty for what you need, but it will definitely serve your purpose perfectly. I have a friend who works as a saltwater tank maintainer (going to offices and homes to clean tanks), and he's allergic to shellfish. He uses these gloves because otherwise if he has a tiny cut on his hand and sticks his hand in any of those tanks he can go into an allergy attack.

Just a note: I'm not sure if this is the best price, so shop around, aquagloves are sold everywhere.

I saw fish tank cleaning gloves on the website & catalog of Doctors Foster & Smith..they are really long..they go allthe way up your arm...check them out...fairly inexpensive too..Petsmart/Petco may also carry them
