    Default hand started to burn after i put it in my tank


    0 Not allowed!
    today,
    as i was feeding i noticed mt hand started to burn after i took it out of the tank.
    it held up for a good 3 minutes.
    im a bit concerned as to why that is happening, not for me but for the fish.
    all parameters are normal and ph is 7.6.
    what could cause this, and will it affect my fish.
    anyone else have this happen to him
    i hear some people say, "i kept a goldfish in a bowl and it lived for a year."
    they don't know how lucky they were and all goldfish live at least 15 years in proper conditions.
    that is equal to saying my human lived in his closet for 5 years!

    So.. you're putting your hand in the water when you feed your fish ????
    If you take your time to do the research FIRST, you can successfully set-up and keep ANY type of aquarium with ease.

    lol, you don't need to use tweezers. I'm betting Cliff has saltwater fish that'll rip his fingers off if he tried it. ;P

    You also don't have to stick your whole hand in the tank to accomplish this, just your fingers will do the trick.

    Vafa, do you have live plants in your tank?

    Edit: Ahhh, I see now, where he was going with that.

    When in doubt, ask yourself... W.W.L.S (What would Lee Say)?

    Yup, if it bothers your hands to put them in tank water, then don't do it if you have another very simple option.
