StressGuardTM is the premium slime coat protection product. StressGuardTM will reduce stress and ammonia toxicity whenever handling or transporting fish. StressGuardTM binds to exposed protein in wounds to promote healing of injured fish and to reduce the likelihood of primary and secondary infections. StressGuardTM is compatible with all medications except those that are copper based. StressGuardTM is not amine based and will not interfere with Purigen® or HyperSorbTM regeneration. StressGuardTM does not coat resins or clog filtration like competing “slime coat” type products can. What makes StressGuardTM very successful at healing is the fact that it contains protein active colloids. This protein active colloidal agent actively seeks out any wounds, abrasions, or places where exposed proteins are and attaches to this area to help directly deliver the disinfectant in the product and start the healing process. This protein active colloid, because it binds to the exposed proteins, also acts like a liquid bandage to the abrasion. Some products are marketed to be squirted in the bag when a fish is purchased. Those products are generally acidic, with some brands being a very strong acid. Putting such a product in a small, enclosed container with a fish often does more harm than any intended good. StressGuardTM has a pH of 7.0. It will not affect the pH of an aquarium, even at large doses. There are no other products on the market that can compare to the effectiveness of StressGuardTM.
