SKU: T973

Seachem Stressguard 500 ml is the ultimate solution for safeguarding fish against stress during handling or transportation. Serving as both an antiseptic and a promoter of healing, Stressguard reduces stress and ammonia toxicity, while binding to exposed protein in wounds to facilitate the healing process and prevent primary and secondary infections. Suitable for both marine and freshwater environments, Stressguard is compatible with all medications except copper-based ones and does not interfere with Purigen® or HyperSorb™ regeneration. Unlike competing "slime coat" products, Stressguard contains protein active colloids that actively target wounds and abrasions, delivering disinfectant directly to affected areas and acting as a liquid bandage. With a neutral pH of 7.0, Stressguard will not alter the aquarium's pH, even at higher doses. Experience unmatched effectiveness and peace of mind with Stressguard—a product unparalleled in its ability to protect and heal aquarium fish.

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™.
