  • Saved my oscar fish

    By on

    We have an adopted Oscar fish that suddenly went lethargic and stressed, and we could not figure out why. We did not know if he was just upset (as oscars are prone to be) or ill, but I added this to the tank in hopes that it would bring him back around. No less than a day later, he's back to swimming around and begging for food. Will always keep this on hand!

  • I now buy it by the gallon.

    By on

    I watch my fish. They heal faster, get sick less often, and overall just seem more content when I use this versus other conditioners. Other water conditioners neutralize more things, and I wish Stress Coat did that so we could have everything in one product. However, if you have an established nitrogen cycle, the need for more neutralizers decreases substantially, and at that point, Stress Coat is tops!

    I have 4 ponds and I have found all the koi and other fish treatments on Chewy.com. I found these products that I use are offered in different sizes and the prices are so much less on Chewy. A big plus, they’re delivered quickly to my door.

  • I think it helps!

    By on

    I got this because I worried about my betta's slime coat with how much time he spends swimming through his plants (silly, I know). He seems quite happy with this.
