Item #: SC4475

Seachem StressGuard™ is the premium slime coat protection product. StressGuard™ will reduce stress and ammonia toxicity whenever handling or transporting fish. StressGuard™ binds to exposed protein in wounds to promote healing of injured fish and to reduce the likelihood of primary and secondary infections. StressGuard™ is compatible with all medications except those that are copper based. StressGuard™ is not amine based and will not interfere with Purigen™ or HyperSorb™ regeneration. StressGuard™ does not coat resins or clog filtration like competing “slime coat” type products can. A 500 mL bottle treats 2500 gallons. Marine or freshwater use.

Saved my kole tang

Pros: Binds to wounds on fish.

Cons: Causes protein skimmer to over skim, foam

My kole tang was scraped and bit my a pair of clownfish when he got to close to their cave. He had some scratches and nips out of his side. I had used this product on my freshwater aquarium before for a pleco that got cut on a rock. He had a large cut and I was scared he would succumb to bacterial infection. I used this in my marine tank and literally 2 days later and my kole tang is on the mend. Thank you Seachem! Just be aware that this product does make your protein skimmer go crazy due to the protein in the product that binds to wounds on fish. I do have a reef and it did not harm anybody else, crabs, shrimp, corals etc. Never hurt inverts in my freshwater either. Great product.

Great Product

Pros: inexpensive, really works

Cons: Can't think of any

This is the best stress preventing product on the market. I use it with water changes, adding new tank mates, and after maintenance.
