API makes it simpler

Follow the API EASY CARE GUIDE steps to simply care abour your aquarium.

Start up & Change Water: Tap water contains chemicals, such as chlorine, chloramines and heavy metals, which are harmful to fish. Use STRESS COAT when starting a new aquarium and whenever changing or adding water.

Makes tap water safe

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.
