Another new aquarium question. I have a decoration in the tank that it is supposed to have a wheel move with air bubbles, but it only moves for a second or two at a time then stops for a minute. I feel like it is defective. If I want to take it out to return, do I need to put gloves on or can I just put my hands in and grab it?

You can put your hands in and grab it. Just make sure your hands are free of chemicals, lotions, soaps, etc. You can rinse your hands really well in water before you put your hand in.

You'll probably find yourself having to stick your hands in the water quite a bit as a fishkeeper It's fine, just follow TexasDomer's advice about making sure they're clean. And for your own sake, make sure you don't have any open cuts and scrapes on your hands/arms.

Also wash your hands with soap and water after playing in the tank. I also rinse my hands and lower arms with just water before sticking them in the tank. Alison

My hands are in my tank so often, my fish don't even move away. I have actually had to nudge one or two to finish what I was doing. lol
I wash/rinse my hands before (for the fishes sake) and after (for mine).
