Subject: [APD] Slime products & Gills -- or - Why doesn't mucosa in a

I am curious about slime coat products like SeaChem's
StressGuard.  If these products form "a protective
coating," why doesn't this mess with their gills --
reducing one stress while addign another?

any thoughts, any answers??

I believe, much like the use of salt, that they stimulate the slime coat not
add another protective layer to the already existing slime coating. Some use
those products after netting fish in which case some of the slime coat may
have been damaged.
