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 excluding those that are copper based. StressGuard isn’t amine based and won’t interfere with Purigen or HyperSorb regeneration. StressGuard does not coat resins or clog filtration like competing â€œslime coatâ€ type products can. What makes StressGuard very successful at healing is the truth 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 in most cases acidic, with some brands being a very strong acid. Putting one of these product in a small, enclosed container with a fish regularly does more harm than any intended good. StressGuard has a pH of 7.0. It is going to not have an effect on the pH of an aquarium, even at large doses. There are no other products in the marketplace that can compare to the effectiveness of StressGuard.
