Adding Fish: The transition from store to home is stressful for fish. When fish are stressed, they can lose their protective slime coat, which makes them susceptible to disease. STRESS COAT acclimate & protect fish.



Proven Efficacy

Testing proves that STRESS COAT reduces stress in fish
Stress is the leading cause of poor health and disease in aquarium and pond fish. Fish are stressed by netting, bagging, fighting and poor water quality. A fish's slime coat protects against disease and helps heal small wounds but is often disturbed by netting, fighting and accidental scrapes. Stressed fish are highly susceptible to disease problems because their immune system is suppressed. When fish are stressed their body produces a stress hormone called cortisol. Cortisol is a measurable indicator of fish stress. Corticol is released into the aquarium waters through gills and urine.

In this test goldfish were netted and moved to a series of individual aquariums. Next half of the fish were treated with STRESS COAT and half were untreated. The stress hormone cortisol was measured over time in treated and untreated aquariums. THe results showed a statistically significant 40% reduction in cortisol in the STRESS COAT-treated fish compared to the untreated fish.

STRESS COAT promotes healing of damaged tissue
In another test fish with similar wounds were separated into two groups. One group was treated with STRESS COAT. The second group was left untreated. Veterinarians later examined the wounded tissue and determined that the STRESS COAT treated fish had healed significantly faster than the untreated fish.

STRESS COAT with Aloe contains natural healing proteins and minerals, similar to a fish's natural slime coat. STRESS COAT replaces a fish's damaged slime coat with a protective healing layer or natural aloe extract. STRESS COAT acts as a bandage, speeding the healing of damaged tissue.

This is just like the kind you can get at the store, only a lot cheaper, so it's got a one-up economically speaking.

This product always worked as as a dechlorinator. I never had an issue with my tap water once conditioned with this product. I have since switched to the big bottles of Prime though since I saw no value in the "stress coat" part of it. I did not see a reduction of "slime" or anything like that. Prime is a better value when bought in the bigger bottles.

I purchase this through other sources but it is still a quality product. While it smells in the container, it is perfectly odorless once it is in your tank. The cap is also a measuring cup so you can be accurate with how much you are adding. A nice staple for keeping your fish babies happy and healthy.

I love this product, but this is not what I was sent. They sent me Accu Clear instead. So now I have to re order the Stress Coat and I don't want to deal with sending back the Accu clear that was sent to me in error.
