AQUAMASTER 'ARMOUR COAT'
IS A NEW CONCEPT IN REDUCING STRESS. 'ARMOUR COAT' NOT ONLY CONDITIONS THE AQUARIUM WATER BY NUTRALISING CHLORINE AND CHLORAMINE AND DETOXIFYING CERTAIN HEAVY METALS. 'ARMOUR COAT' ACTUALLY PROMOTES HEALING OF DAMAGED TISSUE AND PROTECTS FISH BY PROVIDING A SYNTHETIC SLIME COATING.

There is an increasing awareness amongst aquarists that induced stress is the major precursor to disease and death of ornamental fish.

This increases the possibility of territorial fighting and infections from parasites, bacteria and other ailments.

Correct water conditioning is an essential factor in reducing stress. Tap water processed by city water authorities is no suitable for fish. Chlorine, chloramines and ammonia are introduced into water supplies to control bacteria. Whilst these substances are harmless to people and most animals they are highly toxic to aquatic life unless steps are taken to neutralise their effects. Dissolved metallic salts enter the water supply duting preparation and transport through mains and household pipes. Here again the concentrations are not high enough to cause concern when used for human consumption, but their effects can be extremely harmful to fish.

All fish have a natural slime coating covering their skin and scales. This coating is the fish's first line of defence against infection. Recent studies indicate that the fish's slime coating contains enzymes and antibodies to fight infections and acts as a shield against disease-causing organisms in the fish's external environment. In times of stress or fighting, netting or handling, the slime coating secretion can be disturbed, leaving the fish vulnerable to disease.

Aloe Vera extract is incorporated in the formulation of 'Armour Coat' to promote healing of damaged tissue. Aloe Vera has been used successfully for a wide range of human and animal skin conditions for centuries. Recent research has shown the extract of this remarkable plant rapidly promotes healing of damaged tissue in all species of fresh and saltwater fish.
