In general, most aquatic enthusiasts prefer to use nitrile gloves over latex gloves for the best method of protection during aquarium work. Most latex gloves have powder residue, which may contain unknown chemicals and residues that can harm aquatic life. As long as the latex gloves are proven to be powder-free, they can be used but please make sure you check before purchasing.
It is highly recommended to clean a fish tank with aquarium gloves. This is because your hands may be riddled with germs that may be harmful for aquatic life. It is also highly advised to wash your hands with soap and water before putting the gloves on to be extra safe when dealing with animals in aquarium tanks.
If you are required to handle a fish, it is advised that you use wet rubberized gloves such as nitrile or powder free latex gloves. This is because some fish have a slime coating, which can irritate your skin upon contact so the gloves will help mitigate this.
