It’s Smart To Be Proactive!

The best way to keep your aquarium clean is to maintain good water quality. This will keep your fish strong and vibrant, as well as preventing disease.

How Do I Maintain A Healthy Environment?

It is important to test your aquarium water weekly to verify good quality in addition to a bi-weekly partial water change of no more than 25% to help reduce toxic buildup, remove debris the filter missed, and replenish the oxygen available to fish.

How Do I Take Good Care Of My Aquarium & Fish?

  • Feed & observe fish daily
  • Test water quality weekly
  • Change 25% water every 2 weeks
  • Restore your ecosystem monthly

Feed Your Fish Daily

Feed your fish twice daily with API Fish Food which contains nutritionally enhanced proteins, allowing for easy uptake of nutrients and maximum absorption, resulting in less excrement for clear, clean water. Take time to observe fish to ensure they are active & healthy and be sure to check water temperature.

Test Water Quality Weekly

An aquarium is a closed environment and in order for fish to thrive, water must be similar to that which could be found in their natural environment. Poor water quality can cause fish stress, illness and even loss. The 5 common water quality parameters are Ammonia, Nitrite, Nitrate, and pH - all of which may vary over time and all are invisible to the eye which is why it is important to test weekly with API MASTER TEST KITS or API 5-IN-1 TEST STRIPS. It is also a good time to add API STRESS ZYME to keep your aquarium & gravel clean.

Change 25% Water Every 2 Weeks

In a closed aquarium environment there are no natural rivers or streams to carry away debris and other waste materials. It is important to renew 25% of the aquarium water every two weeks. When you change the water, it is important to know that tap water contains chemicals that make it safe for us to drink but harmful for fish, therefore add a water conditioner such as API STRESS COAT.

Restore Your Ecosystem Monthly

It is important to change your filter media & clean gravel monthly, however in doing so it can disrupt the fragile ecosystem of your aquarium. Use API QUICK START to strengthen it with ‘beneficial’ nitrifying bacteria that will naturally consume toxic compounds and help prevent fish stress. Also recommended when starting a new aquarium or changing the water.

Important information

Safety Information :

Please Read Instructions Before Use

Ingredients :

Aloe Vera

Directions :

When using tap water to set up a marine aquarium, when adding or handling fish, changing water, or when fish are damaged by injury or disease, use API MARINE STRESS COAT. To help repair damaged skin and fins and to replace slime coating, use dosing cap on bottle to add 10 ml per 10 gallons (38 L) of aquarium water. To remove chlorine, chloramines, and ammonia, add 5 ml per 10 gallons (38 L) of aquarium water. Tips: most artificial salt mixes do not remove tap water disinfectants, like chlorine and chloramines. To ensure all tap water disinfectants are removed, use STRESS COAT when making partial water changes or when topping off the tank with fresh water. Major and minor elements found in natural seawater are essential to marine aquariums. Over time, these elements are depleted by natural aquarium processes. To ensure trace element availability, add this product on a weekly basis.

I use to use Api marine stress coat years ago when I had a saltwater tank. I haven''t used it in a long time but decided to try it out again. I put this in my 120 reef tank and shortly after my protien skimmer went crazy and I had to shut it down. I specifically purchased the marine stress coat because of that issue. I don''t know what''s changed but it definitely made my skimmer foam so I would not recommend.

This product is amazing. I use this in my salt and freshwater aquariums and after years of use, I have nothing but praise. I always add this when making water changes, adding new fish, when my fish seems stressed, water changes and when my fish don''t play nice and someone gets nipped. Works fast and the next day my aquariums are so much livelier.
