  • This is an amazing product.

    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.

    I use this as a water conditioner and a stress coat addition in all 4 of my freshwater tanks. Makes doing water changes a breeze. No funky order or cloudiness when adding to the water.

    I bought the large size, which was a great value and thankfully, didn't leak in shipment. I would have preferred the packing to have been a little better, but nothing was broken or leaked!

  • Stress Coat is the best

    By on

    I have had aquariums (fresh water, brackish and salt) for 50 years and I've been using Stress Coat since it hit the market. It is the best product for removing chlorine and chloramines, reducing stress and aiding in slime coat repair. And it's way cheaper at Chewy than at the pet store.
