    Default Stress Coat for Marine Fishes


    0 Not allowed!
    I asked some friends who have great experience with marine fish and reefs and they all said they don't like to use Stress Coat in their aquariums because of "harmful irritants." I have never heard of this and I was wondering what you all put in your water for the fish as far as conditioner.
    I am using pure R/o water so there is no chloramines or anything, I just want to treat the fish.

    Most people don't treat their fish when they buy them. Some quaratine theirs first, then watch them, and then put them into the main tank, others drip acclamate, and some just float the suckers.

    I've had it with the nemo-like clowns, they ship extremely poorly, so I quaratine them and treat them for ich and mold first, then put them into the main tank.

    If you are medicating a fish, especially in SW, put them in a quaratine tank first, don't medicate your entire tank.

    I add no chemicals except de-chlorinate to my tank because I don't want to mess with the chemistry, I have to much invested in corals.

    I'm not going to medicate him. I got him from a really good LFS of mine and he's really healthy.
