    Hi!
    So I like to paint my nails- a lot. But I’ve never had a problem with cleaning my tanks with painted nails because I never do it in the same day.
    However, I’m leaving for France on Wednesday and I most likely won’t be able to do any cleaning tomorrow, but I just repainted a broken nail. Will painting your nails and cleaning a fish tank in the same day harm the fish?
    Thanks!
    (I hope this is the right section to post this)

    I don’t think so. Because of the fact that most finger nail polish is water proof, I wouldn’t think it wis ups hurt your fish. I couldn’t be wrong. @Colin_T might be able to help you on that one.

    (If you feel like you might contaminate the tank, just where a lax free surgical glove. I hope this helps!) :)

    Make sure the nail polish is dry, then wash your hands with warm soapy water to remove any residue from the nail polish, and you should be fine.
