API POND STRESS COAT water conditioner removes chlorine and neutralizes chloramines and heavy metals. It also reduces stress in pond fish, and promotes the healing of wounds and regeneration of damaged tissue with Aloe Vera.
API Pond Stress Coat water conditioner acts as a unique water conditioner that replaces the natural slime coating on the skin of your pond fish when it has been damaged by handling, netting, or other forms of stress, and prevents the loss of internal fluids using electrolytes. This product contains Aloe Vera to help heal torn fins and skin wounds, protecting damaged tissue against disease-causing organisms. The slime coat on a fish is composed of a glycoprotein (protein with attached carbohydrate) that serves as the frontline barrier to virtually everything from large physical objects to tiny bacteria. This barrier also works to keep essential fluids and electrolytes in the fish, and helps the fish glide through the water by reducing surface resistance. It's vitally important that any damage to this layer is repaired to avoid any further illness.
API Pond Stress Coat water conditioner instantly removes chlorine as it conditions tap water, and should be used when setting up a pond, adding new fish, or changing pond water. Without using a tap water condition there's a chance that your water from the mains can raise your hardness and this can also promote algae growth which will slowly take over your pond destroying any plants that you have growing in the pond.
When adding water to the pond: add 120 ml. for each 1,820 litres of pond water. When introducing fish to the pond and to promote healing: double the dose.
