Reduce fish stress and heal damaged tissue with API Stress Coat Aquarium Water Conditioner. Chlorine and chloramines in tap water can damage fish tissue and cause stress due to breathing difficulties. API Stress Coat Aquarium Water Conditioner reduces fish stress by 40% by instantly removing harmful chemicals and making tap water safe.

  • 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.

  • This is an amazing product.

    By on Top 250 Contributor

    We have to do water changes often because of the quality of water where we are and this has been a wonder. Water changes so frequently not only stress our fish out but that in turn stresses us out. Stress coat has helped tremendously in our situation. We have five neon tetras and five African dwarf frogs and they all seem to be less stressed during water changes. Would definitely recommend.

  • Easy to measure dose

    Good price, much cheaper than at big box pet stores. I like this one since it has a easy cap to measure the dosage. Product works well for my 3 tanks.
