  • My ponds treatments

    By on

    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 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.

    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.

    So glad I was able to get this at such a great price. My female bettas got over their divider and had a go at each other and this will help their fins! Thanks Chewy!

    My cory catfish are sensitive to this product if too much of it is used. Other than that, this is a decent product, and Chewy.com offers the best price on the market!
