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.
What makes StressGuard™ 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. StressGuard™ 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 StressGuard™.
Use 1/2–1 capful (2.5–5 mL) to every 40 L (10 US gallons)
daily until signs of stress have abated or healing is complete. Dose
may be safely doubled.
