A unique water conditioner that replaces the natural slime coating on the skin of pond fish when it has been damaged by handling, netting or other forms of stress. Instantly removes chlorine and conditions tap water. Contains Aloe Vera to help heal torn fins and skin wounds. Prevents the loss of internal fluids and electrolytes. Protects damaged tissue of fish against external disease-causing organisms. Use when setting up a pond, adding new fish or changing pond water.
All pond fish secrete a mucoprotein protective slime coat that covers the scales and skin. This slime coat acts as a defense against invasion by bacterial, parasitic, and fungal pathogens. Essential electrolytes necessary are lost through breaks that may occur in the skin and slime coat, causing dangerous stress. Abrasions and open wounds caused by handling, netting, and breeding behavior are readily attacked by disease organisms, resulting in further stress and disease. Pond Care Stress Coat is a special patented formula containing Aloe Vera (nature's own liquid bandage) and a slime coat replenisher. This unique formula not only eases stress but also promotes the healing of damaged fish tissue.
