Proven to reduce fish stress, which can result from changing water, poor water quality, and fish handling.
Rivers to Reef says: This stuff really works and is not a gimmick! We have used Stress Coat (and Aquarium Salt) when transporting extremely sensitive fish and have reduced mortality rates significantly.
