API STRESS COAT 473ml Bonus Bottle

Are your fish suffering from poor health, stress, or have visible wounds, ulcers, or fin damage? This may be a sign of stress making them increasingly vulnerable to disease and even death. Many factors can cause stress to aquarium fish including handling, temperature, oxygen levels, water quality, and other fish.

API STRESS COAT, with the healing power of Aloe Vera, is scientifically proven to reduce fish stress and heal damaged tissue. It forms a synthetic slime coating and replaces the natural secretion of slime that is often interrupted by handling, shipping, fish fighting, temperature changes, poor water quality, or other forms of stress. API Stress Coat reduces susceptibility to disease and infection and helps heal torn fins and skin wounds, whilst minimizing electrolyte loss. API Stress Coat instantly removes chlorine and chloramines from tap water and neutralizes heavy metals.
This is a great product to use when starting a new aquarium, adding or changing water and when adding or handling fish. Scientifically proven to reduce fish stress by 40%, heal wounds, and promote regeneration of damaged fish tissue.


API Stress Coat Plus is a water conditioner that removes chlorine, chloramine, and heavy metals from aquarium water making it safe for fish. It has also been proven to reduce the effects of stress in cold water, tropical and marine aquarium Fish. Containing the healing power of Aloe Vera, it not only replaces the slime coat that protects fish but it also aids in the healing of wounds or ulcerations.

API Quick Start 473ml

When setting up a new aquarium it has always been recommended that no fish are added until the tank has had time to cycle (or grow healthy bacteria) which can take up to 21 days. Whether it’s a new aquarium, a new filter or a large water change, the absence of good bacteria can cause harmful ammonia and nitrite to build up from fish waste, often resulting in fish loss or “new tank syndrome”. Without enough healthy bacteria to breakdown these harmful chemicals the result is most often heartbreak. The problem is that when setting up a new tank no one wants to wait all that time before adding the fish! That’s where API Quick Start comes in, with its unique, patented nitrifying bacteria you’ll never have to sit and look at an empty tank again, or face the loss of your fish due to ammonia and nitrite poisoning. The bacteria in Quick Start are scientifically proven to quickly consume ammonia and nitrite to help prevent “new tank syndrome.” Quick Start allows immediate addition of fish to new freshwater or saltwater aquariums and is beneficial to use in any instance where there has been a significant reduction or loss of beneficial bacteria from the aquarium.

API Quick Start instantly introduces good bacteria to a new aquarium which allows immediate introduction of fish. Suitable for use in Cold water, tropical and marine fish tanks, the bacteria in API Quick Start will instantly begin to process the harmful nitrites and ammonia to ensure water quality remains stable and healthy for new fish.



Ammonia,one of the worst killer of fish in your aquarium, so if you are doingwater changes or if your water suddenly has an ammonia spike, immediately treat it with API AMMO LOCK.

Ammonia is produced from the waste of fish and invertebrates. Ammonia is also released from the gills of fish during osmoregulation as well as from bacterial decomposition of excess food, decaying plant material and decom-posing animal material.

The majority of the ammonia entering the water from fish is diffused through the gills. Regardless of the source, ammonia is problematic to all living organisms in high amounts. The lethal effects of exposure to ammonia in fish are severe gill damage leading to suffocation, kidney damage due to inability to osmoregulate, and the increased inability to secrete ammonia from the body resulting in metabolic and physiologi-cal imbalance. Even at low levels, ammonia problems are documented in reduced growth rate and damage to gill filament tissue.

Ammo lock is scientifically proven to protect fish cells and especially their gills against ammonia.  Ammo Lock works immediately, in both fresh water and saltwater aquariums by detoxifying ammonia and removing chlorine and chloramines.  Ammo Lock does not remove the ammonia but locks it up as a nontoxic form until it can be filtered out through naturalbiological filtration (detoxifying).
