In my view,, When fish appear stressed, a water change or two spaced 24 hours apart, will do more than many of these products. All I have ever seen them do is gum up the filters.

The LEAST amount of STUFF such as this that you add to the water, The BETTER off you and of course your fish will be.

I use a stress coat to "de-clorinate" my water...it's an additive I guess, It's called erm, "stress-zyme" by API...but I agree w/ the first answer, 25% water changes spaced 24 hours apart is much better for "stress" than trying to treat it w/ some product.
