Yeeeeeah....I would be a little scared if I read that on my test too. O.o;

I have this Kit, and highly recommend it.

No gloves or masks, I'm sure I've gotten a bit of everything all over my hands at some point and I'm still alive! ;)
You can dispose of it down the sink as well. Or at least I always have, and even when I worked at an LPS and we used this kit thats all we did.

I have seen that one before. Thanks for the recommendation! An also all the other help. I appreciate it. When my fish started to look sick 2 days ago, no one replies to my threads.

You're very welcome! :)
I'm so sorry you didn't get replies sooner....D: I probably didn't spot the thread myself, I can't say why no one else would have not commented however...

I am not sure. But I should have tested my water, could have stopped this from happening

Ahh, don't beat yourself up too badly. We all make mistakes, and we all learn. Now at least you can get everything straightened away and start over with a little more knowledge. :)

I saw one today, a beautiful teal/black color. But I was only there to look. And I still had my dead fishy in the tank waiting for my dad to move him because I'm too scared. I'm going back on Thursday hoping he is there!

I use that test, never have used gloves or a face mask. I might be taking chances, but I've never had any issues.
