API makes it simpler

Follow the API EASY CARE GUIDE steps to simply care abour your aquarium.

Start up & Change Water: Tap water contains chemicals, such as chlorine, chloramines and heavy metals, which are harmful to fish. Use STRESS COAT when starting a new aquarium and whenever changing or adding water.

Makes tap water safe

Adding Fish: The transition from store to home is stressful for fish. When fish are stressed, they can lose their protective slime coat, which makes them susceptible to disease. STRESS COAT acclimate & protect fish.



Proven Efficacy

Testing proves that STRESS COAT reduces stress in fish
Stress is the leading cause of poor health and disease in aquarium and pond fish. Fish are stressed by netting, bagging, fighting and poor water quality. A fish's slime coat protects against disease and helps heal small wounds but is often disturbed by netting, fighting and accidental scrapes. Stressed fish are highly susceptible to disease problems because their immune system is suppressed. When fish are stressed their body produces a stress hormone called cortisol. Cortisol is a measurable indicator of fish stress. Corticol is released into the aquarium waters through gills and urine.

In this test goldfish were netted and moved to a series of individual aquariums. Next half of the fish were treated with STRESS COAT and half were untreated. The stress hormone cortisol was measured over time in treated and untreated aquariums. THe results showed a statistically significant 40% reduction in cortisol in the STRESS COAT-treated fish compared to the untreated fish.

STRESS COAT promotes healing of damaged tissue
In another test fish with similar wounds were separated into two groups. One group was treated with STRESS COAT. The second group was left untreated. Veterinarians later examined the wounded tissue and determined that the STRESS COAT treated fish had healed significantly faster than the untreated fish.

STRESS COAT with Aloe contains natural healing proteins and minerals, similar to a fish's natural slime coat. STRESS COAT replaces a fish's damaged slime coat with a protective healing layer or natural aloe extract. STRESS COAT acts as a bandage, speeding the healing of damaged tissue.

Seachem Neutral Regulator 1 Kilo

Neutral Regulator™ adjusts pH to neutral (pH 7.0) from either a low or high pH and maintains it there. It softens water by precipitating calcium and magnesium while removing any chlorine, chloramine, or ammonia. The use of Neutral Regulator™ makes other conditioning unnecessary. To lower pH below 7.0 use Neutral Regulator™ with Acid Regulator™ (or Discus Buffer™). To raise pH above 7.0 use with Alkaline Regulator™. All of these products will enhance and stabilize the freshwater aquarium environment. In addition to Neutral Regulator’s™ superior buffering capacity, it will remove chlorine and chloramine, bind ammonia, nitrite, and nitrate, stimulate slime coat production, and buffer the pH to 7.0.

Seachem Purigen 250ml

SeaChem Purigen is a premium synthetic adsorbent that is unlike any other filtration product. It is not a mixture of ion exchangers or adsorbents, but a unique macro-porous synthetic polymer that removes soluble and insoluble impurities from water at a rate and capacity that exceeds all others, even HyperSorb, by over 500%. Purigen; removes proteins, nitrites and nitrates, ammonia, and a broad spectrum of organics, yet its impact on trace elements is minimal. It significantly raises redox. It polishes water to unparalleled clarity. Like HyperSorb, Purigen darkens progressively as it exhausts, and is easily renewed by treating with household bleach. A 100 mL bag of Purigen purifies and polishes up to 100 gallons of water for up to six months. Purigen is designed for both marine and freshwater use.

Seachem Prime 500ml

Prime® is the complete and concentrated conditioner for both fresh and salt water. Prime® removes chlorine, chloramine and ammonia. Prime® converts ammonia into a safe, non-toxic form that is readily removed by the tanks biofilter. Prime® may be used during tank cycling to alleviate ammonia/nitrite toxicity. Prime® detoxifies nitrite and nitrate, allowing the biofilter to more efficiently remove them. It will also detoxify any heavy metals found in the tap water at typical concentration levels. Prime® also promotes the production and regeneration of the natural slime coat. Prime® is non-acidic and will not impact pH. Prime® will not overactivate skimmers. Use at start-up and whenever adding or replacing water. Nearly all companies manufacture a product that removes chlorine. None of those, however, can compare in quality, concentration, or effectiveness to Seachems flagship product: Prime®. Prime® is the second most concentrated dechlorinator on the market after our own aquavitro alpha™. A single 100 mL bottle will treat 1000 US gallons of tap water. Prime® will remove both chlorine and chloramines from municipal water supplies. Prime® also contains a binder which renders ammonia, nitrite, and nitrate non-toxic. It is very important to understand how those two functions work together. All dechlorinators operate through a chemical process known as reduction. In this process, toxic dissolved chlorine gas (Cl2) is converted into non-toxic chloride ions (Cl-). The reduction process also breaks the bonds between chlorine and nitrogen atoms in the chloramine molecule (NH2Cl), freeing the chlorine atoms and replacing them with hydrogen (H) to create ammonia (NH3). Typically, dechlorinators stop there, leaving an aquarium full of toxic ammonia! Seachem takes the necessary next step by including an ammonia binder to detoxify the ammonia produced in the reduction process.

API Stress Zyme, 64-Ounce

Stress Zyme is a biological filter additive containing live bacteria that improves the development of the biological filter and helps clean a dirty aquarium. The build-up of organic pollution in the aquarium inhibits the growth of nitrifying bacteria. The bacteria in Stress Zyme keep conditions in the aquarium right for the development of the biological filter by consuming harmful organic pollutants. This speeds the development of the biological filter in newly set up aquariums. A build-up of organic compounds also promotes the growth of disease-causing organisms in the aquarium. Stress Zyme keeps the biological filter working properly by keeping the aquarium gravel and filter clean. Water quality and living conditions are improved when Stress Zyme is used on a regular basis. Each teaspoonful of Stress Zyme contains 300 million bacteria. These bacteria are in a dormant state and become active when added to the aquarium. Stress Zyme has a five-year shelf life and does not require refrigeration. Stress Zyme is effective in freshwater and marine aquariums.
