Free shipping for all orders over $50*
This product replaces the natural protective slime coating fish need in times of stress and also removes chlorine, neutralizes chloramines, and detoxifies heavy metals. It contains Aloe Vera to promote the healing and regeneration of damaged fish tissue. When starting a new tank or changing out water, Stress Coat forms a synthetic slime coat on fish to prevent loss of essential electrolytes.
Directions for use:
· To help repair damaged skin and fins & replace slime coating: add two teaspoons (10 mL) for each 10 U.S. gallons of aquarium water.
· To remove chlorine and neutralize chloramine: Add one teaspoon (5 mL) for each 10 U.S. gallons (40L) of aquarium water.
Purpose and Benefits:
Stress Coat forms a synthetic slime coating on
the skin of fish, replacing the natural secretion
of slime that is lost during netting, handling,
shipping, fighting, and other forms of stress.
Stress Coat is a patented water conditioner
suitable for fresh and salt water aquariums,
water gardens, and ponds. Stress Coat contains Aloe Vera, which acts as a liquid bandage, to protect and heal damaged fish tissue. Stress Coat instantly removes chlorine and heavy metals such as copper and zinc from tap water. Stress Coat also removes chloramines by breaking the chlorine-ammonia bond.
The effectiveness of Stress Coat with Aloe Vera
has been proven by independent studies conducted at the University of Georgia, School of Veterinary Medicine. Researchers found that
Stress Coat helped heal wounds and speed tissue regrowth. Dr John Gratzek summarizes the results:
Personally, I am satisfied with the results
since my initial thoughts were skeptical to say
the least. These definite statements can be made without equivocation: Stress Coat in no way harms aquarium fish, alters pH, or affects the biological filter. No ammonia or nitrite was
detected in the test aquariums. The results
indicated that the Stress Coat formula reduced
the wound size compared to untreated fish
tissue. Aloe Vera is high in mucopolysaccharides, an essential component of many tissues and believed to help in the healing process. The glycoproteins Aloctin A and Aloctin B are also present and identified as the probable tissue-healers.
Each dose of Stress Coat removes 3.0 ppm chlorine and 0.3 ppm heavy metals.
For tropical fish use only. Do not use on fish intended for human consumption.
Stress Coat can be used with freshwater tropical fish, marine fish, invertebrates, and coldwater species including koi and goldfish. Stress Coat will not harm aquatic plants. Stress Coat may cause foaming in marine aquariums using a protein skimmer. Stress Coat will not interfere with water test kits.
