Seachem Stress Guard
anyone familar with this product? I wanted to find a good product when adding new fish. I know about stress coat but have heard bad things about the aloe vera that is in it. Is stress guard worth buying or is there something better
This is best if added to the shipping water when transporting fish long distances. I would not use it in an established aquarium. Fish have a remarkable ability to heal themselves in clean stable water. Most water conditioners contain some form of slime coat protection anyway, which is more than adequate.

The aquarist is one who must learn the ways of the biologist, the chemist, and the veterinarian. [unknown source]
Something we all need to remember: The fish you've acquired was quite happy not being owned by you, minding its own business. If you’re going to take it under your wing then you’re responsible for it. Every aspect of its life is under your control, from water quality and temperature to swimming space. [Nathan Hill in PFK]
