Gloves
« on: November 05, 2004, 09:57:08 AM »
I have developed a condition on at least one finger on each hand which will keep me from being able to put them in my tank for awhile.  With my wife pregnant and afraid of the toxins in the tank it has been very difficult to maintain the tank lately.  

Does anyone know where I can pick up some gloves adequate to keep my hands dry down to the bottom of my tanks (~18" high) and resistant to the rock and harsh seawater so that they can be reused over the course of a couple months?  I haven't seen anything like this in our local stores (they don't really have much equipment anyway) and I'm no longer going to Seattle for anything so I don't have a chance to shop around up there anymore.

Thanks!
Years ago my mother used to say to me, she'd say, "In this world, Elwood, you must be" - she always called me Elwood - "In this world, Elwood, you must be oh so smart or oh so pleasant." Well, for years I was smart. I recommend pleasant. You may quote me.

I think you can go to Ranch and Home and pick up those big rubber gloves for doing full body cavity searches on cows and stuff..

Thanks for the suggestions.  I guess I'll try ranch and home first since it's close.

Angel and I  used disposable gloves last Sunday for transplanting goodies in my Tank.   They worked fantastic.    :wink:  PSA, I will try to remember to bring you some if you show on Friday at Mikeydogs.   I hope you can make it.
