Every time an aquarium fish is netted or handled its protective slime coating is disturbed, causing a loss of essential electrolytes through the fish's skin. This leads to suppression of the immune system. Stress Coat replaces the slime coat and treats damaged tissue with the proven healing properties of Aloe Vera.

In addition, Stress Coat removes chlorine, neutralizes chloramines, and detoxifies heavy metals found in tap water. Ideal for both freshwater and saltwater aquariums.


Package Size16 oz.
Treats up to940 gal.
Internal Id


Aloe vera.


Use API dosing cap included with bottle. Add 5 ml per 10 U.S. gallons. Double the dose to replace slime coat and to repair damaged skin and fins.

Been around forever


Works as advertised. I add extra to my sick tank whenever I need to medicate a fish. The only product of this type that I use.

Great For Freshwater Fish


I have a variety of freshwater fish Stress Coat is great for partial water change or a complete water change I use this product with Correct PH Useing both will sometimes make the water look cloudy ,but in 24 hrs the water will get crystal clear My fish get energetic when I change their water LOVE THIS PRODUCT Fast Shipping!!!

GREAT stuff!


I was directed to this product by 2 local fish stores with experienced fish keepers. I use Stress Coat with a little bit of PRIME, as PRIME is even better at neutraliing existing chemical imbalances than treating tap water.

One strange thing that I love is smelling the Aloe. You know it's going to be good for the tank. Fish have been very happy ever since I began using this.

Know Stress


Love this product, I've used this product for 20 years or more. That pet place is a great place to get it from, good price!

API Stress Coat = AWESOME!


I LOVE THIS PRODUCT! This is all I have ever used for all my aquatic critters. A MUST HAVE! Works great! A great price and fast shipping @ TFP

The Best!


I have tried other products in the past, but API's Stress Coat is the absolute best. I have a 12 in Tiger Oscar who's going on his second birthday, he's thrived after two moves and a tank upgrade, I've never once have had to treat him for illness and I believe it's because I paid a little bit more for a phenomenal product.



Excellent for repairing and maintaining slime coat as well as dichlorination!! I'm not sure why this system would not allow me to give this product 5 Stars. It is a 5 Star product.
