Interesting article on one of the dangers to humans of having a marine tank.

Mycobacterium marinum: The Fish Disease You Could Catch by Steven Pro - Reefkeeping.com

The last preventative measure is one you should all know well from Kindergarten: wash your hands! Washing with warm water and an antibiotic soap for 30-60 seconds can be especially helpful in keeping the aquarist from becoming infected. I recommend washing your hands immediately after coming into contact with any aquarium water and even when wearing gloves, just in case there was a small leak that went unnoticed.
Please be careful. This disease is sort of the "dirty little secret" of the ornamental fish industry.
