FAQ: Is it true that Seachem Stressguard™ works by being an irritant to the fish,the irritation being the cause of increased slime coat production?

No. StressGuard™ does not contain anything to "irritate" fish into producing more slime. What makes StressGuard™ very successful at healing is the fact that it contains protein active colloids. This protein active colloidal agent actively seeks out any wounds, abrasions, or places where exposed proteins are and attaches to this area to help directly deliver the disinfectant in the product and start the healing process. This protein active colloid, because it binds to the exposed proteins, also acts like a liquid bandage to the abrasion.
