That's actually a legit question kiddo..sometimes you are required to put your hand down in your tank for different reasons..wash the hand you'll be using right up to your elbow carefully(soaping and especially rinsing),and you're good to go..if you want to be extra carefull about the soap you use,try something as pure as possible along the lines of Ivory.

I put my hands in my tanks all the time(makes my arthritis feel so good). Just make sure you don't have any soap or hand lotion or perfume on when you dip in. I usually just rinse mine in warm water first.

My Bettas eat their food off of my fingertips (washed between tanks of course) but they have always done it.

When you clean your tank your hand goes in........ I would think so anyway. no difference. also try a small clay pot ( terricatta pots... not sure how to spell it) you can bury half or so of the pot in the gravel laying on its side. then you will have a little cave for your fish. just a suggestion.

I always put my hands and arms in tank to rearrange my live plants. I have never had a problem with my fish getting sick.
