Product Review: CoraLife Aqua Gloves

by | Apr 5, 2022 | Equipment | 1 comment

For years I have limited my tanks to “armpit deep”.  The primary reason is because of serviceability and didn’t want to get my sleeves wet.  Typically, if it is difficult to do it will not be done.  For over 25 years I never wore any gloves due to convenience.  I was lucky not to encounter any palytoxin, venom stings, etc. but have cut my hand many times grabbing rocks covered with vermatid snails and bristleworms.  Recently, I was provided a pair of these Coralife Aqua Gloves to try out. This will be perfect when I decide to re-aquascape my overgrown 120 gallon tank.

The gloves retail for ~ $30 online. For the most part they work as described and easy enough to wash, dry and store. The durability and longevity of the product will be the only criteria I can not comment on at this point.


  • Glove material is thick and durable but still flexible to grab small things.
  • The 28″ length is appropriate for the most common tank depths.
  • The sleeve retainer is nice to prevent it from slipping down your arm.


  • None at this point in time.

yes, after many years of bristle worm stings (and handling small urchins) I have spines and things embedded in my skin. Plus, now I'm allergic to bristle worms and have to scrape their bristles out of my skin, by placing my fingers under running water and scraping the bristles out with the dull side of a knife. Urchin spines tips broke off on my thumb and index finger, and took months to grow out, plus bring sharp, the spines were constantly being pushed in, rather then turning sideways and floating to the surface like a wood splinter.
