API Stress Coat Plus and API Stress Zyme are now available in a bundle, which means you no longer need to purchase them separately. Condition your aquarium, introduce beneficial bacteria, and help reduce fish stress all in one convenient bundle!

API Stress Coat Plus
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.

API Stress Zyme
Helps keep a naturally balanced aquarium by eliminating sludge build-up & preventing ammonia & nitrite poisoning, low oxygen levels, and low pH. Use when setting up and maintaining an aquarium. Stress Zyme + Water Conditioner is safe for fresh or saltwater fish, invertebrates, and plants.

Stress Zyme + Water Conditioner keeps the aquarium cleaner and reduces maintenance. Each teaspoonful contains over 300 million live bacteria that digest and dissolve hard to clean dirt and sludge. Keeps aquarium gravel and glass clean. Continuous use assures a cleaner, healthier aquarium.

Use 2 tsp per 10 gallons on day 1, 7, and 14 for new aquariums. Add weekly in established aquariums, at the dose of 1 tsp per 10 gallons. 16 oz. treats 946 gallons.

Keep from freezing temperatures.

API Stress Coat Plus
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.

API Stress Zyme
Purpose and Benefits
A biological filter additive containing live bacteria that improves the development of the biological filter and helps clean a dirty aquarium. The build-up of organic pollution in the aquarium inhibits the growth of nitrifying bacteria. The bacteria keep conditions in the aquarium right for the development of the biological filter by consuming harmful organic pollutants. This speeds the development of the biological filter in newly set up aquariums.

A build-up of organic compounds also promotes the growth of disease-causing organisms in the aquarium. Keeps the biological filter working properly by keeping the aquarium gravel and filter clean. Water quality and living conditions are improved when used on a regular basis.

Each teaspoonful contains 300 million bacteria. These bacteria are in a dormant state and become active when added to the aquarium. Stress Zyme has a 5-year shelf life and does not require refrigeration. Effective in freshwater and marine aquariums.

Directions for Use
Shake well before using.

New Aquariums:
On the 1st, 7th, and 14th days add 2 teaspoonfuls (10 ml) for every 10 U.S. gallons (40 L) of aquarium water. Thereafter, each week add 1 teaspoonful (5 ml) for every 10 gallons (40 L) of aquarium water.

Existing Aquariums:
To maintain good water quality and healthy biological filtration, add 1 teaspoonful (5 ml) for every 10 U.S. gallons (40 L) of aquarium water weekly.
