I try to keep my hands out of my tank as much as possible. I probably put my hands in once every 2 weeks to mount some frags and syphon my sandbed. Just curious how often or seldom you guys put your hands in.
Really? What reasons do you guys have for going in that often? I use tools like long tongs and "julians thing" so I don't really have many other reasons to reach in too much unless something requires immediate attention.
I always use gloves, but depends on what I'm doing. I've been working on my rockwork recently and just finished removing my sandbed, so my hands were in there pretty much daily for a while. My fingers are always in there daily to feed.
One a week on average for when I do my weekly maintenance like sand cleaning, coral positioning and stuff like that. I always wash my hands twice before going into the tank. I try not to put them in more than once a week. But my fingers are in daily during feeding, but I still wash them twice.
