What is API Stress Coat?

API Stress Coat is a tap water conditioner from leading aquarium treatment manufacturers API designed to reduce fish stress. Stress Coat water conditioner removes chlorine, chloramines and ammonia from tap water, these elements are toxic to fish and can lead to fish stress, increasing fish susceptibility to disease.

However, unlike other tap water conditioners, API Stress Coat contains the healing power of Aloe vera, which helps fish replace their natural secretion and slime coat with a synthetic slime coating. API Stress Coat also helps to heal damaged tissue, repair damaged skin and reduce fish stress caused by damage or disease.

Does API Stress Coat work?
