Seachem StressGuard 500ml (SC-523)
Reduce Fish Stress
Seachem StressGuard helps to reduce stress and ammonia toxicity to minimise fish death due to handling or transporting.
Besides keeping fish calm, Seachem StressGuard also promotes healing of injured fish, by binding to exposed protein in their wounds and this reduces the likelihood of primary and secondary infections.
Safe for Fish
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.
Promotes Fish Healing
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.
- Use 1/2 to 1 capful (2.5 to 5 mL) to every 40 L (10 US gallons) daily until signs of stress have abated or healing is complete.
- Dose may be safely doubled.

Answer: StressGuard is compatible with all medications, EXCEPT those that are copper based, including Seachem Cupramine.
3. How often can StressGuard be dosed to an aquarium?
Answer: When used as directed, StressGuard can be dosed safely every 24 hours (the active ingredient dissipates in a 24 hour period).
4. Is it true that StressGuard works by being an irritant to the fish,the irritation being the cause of increased slime coat production?
Answer: No. StressGuard does not contain anything to "irritate" fish into producing more slime. 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.
5. Do I need to remove carbon or other chemical filtration media when using StressGuard?
Answer: No, chemical filtration does not have a significant impact on StressGuard.
6: Should I turn off my protein skimmer when dosing with StressGuard?
Answer: Yes, it is best to turn off your protein skimmer when dosing with StressGuard.
