*Instantly removes chlorine, chloramines and neutralizes heavy metals
*Helps replace the natural slime coating fish need in times of stress
*Our best-selling aquarium water conditioner!

Improves water quality: Tap water usually contains chlorine, chloramines and heavy metals harmful to fish, and its chemistry will likely vary day to day. Regular use of Stress Coat multipurpose conditioner instantly removes these elements. Add 2 tsp per 10 gallons directly to aquarium after water changes.

Fights fish stress: Every time a fish is netted or handled, its protective slime coating is disturbed, causing a loss of essential electrolytes through the skin. This leads to suppression of the immune system, resulting in increased susceptibility to disease. Stress Coat contains Aloe Vera to help repair the natural slime coating that fish need when stressed from handling, shipping, fighting, or other forms of stress.

Use Stress Coat® when setting up an aquarium, changing water, or adding fish. 16 oz treats 946 gallons. For fresh or saltwater aquariums.

Why do you need Stress Coat®?
Instantly removes chlorine and neutralizes heavy metals while replacing the natural slime coating fish need in times of stress.

Use whenever you are:

  • Setting up an aquarium
  • Helping to treat fish damaged by injury or disease
  • Adding or handling new fish
  • Changing water

Directions: To help repair damaged skin or fins, or replace slime coating: Add two teaspoonfuls for each 10 gallons of aquarium water.

To remove chlorine and neutralize chloramines: Add one teaspoonful for each 10 gallons of tap water. 16 oz size treats 960 gallons.

Stress Coat Marine

Contains Aloe Vera, which promotes healing and regeneration of damaged fish tissue and forms a synthetic slime coat to help prevent electrolyte imbalance. Stress Coat Marine also removes chlorine, chloramines, and ammonia in tap water. Developed for use with a protein skimmer; will not cause foaming.

When to use
When using tap water to set up a marine aquarium, when adding or handling fish, changing water or when fish are damaged by injury or disease.

Directions for use
To help repair damaged skin and fins and to replace slime coating: Using the dosing cap on bottle, add 10 ml per 10 gallons of aquarium water.
To remove chlorine, chloramines and ammonia: Add 5 ml per 10 gallons of aquarium water.

Keep out of the reach of children. For aquarium use only. Not for human consumption or for fish intended for human consumption.

Most artificial salt mixes do not remove tap water disinfectants, like chlorine and chloramines. To assure all tap water disinfectants are removed, use Stress Coat Marine when making a partial water change or when topping off the tank with fresh water.
