Stress Coat+

I've noticed Lebron sometimes has pieces of slime coat on a few rays 2-4 times a week. :\ Is this normal? Active as ever, eats well, etc. I've heard they shed but is this shedding? It's hardly noticeable, it's just when you look very closely. Tank is filtered, heated to 78F, water changes 2x per week on 50%, varied diet... Help? I went to Petsmart yesterday and I bought API fertilizer, water conditioner, and stress coat+. Should I use the stress coat to boost his slime? I heard positive reviews on this site and other sites so can I add a little bit in each water change? Thanks so much! :)

Stress coat + will probably make the shedding more apparent :) is anything irritating him? it might just be a response to the Aq or fin rot.
but go ahead and use it XD I always accidentally ODed on stress coat :P

I didn't treat him with the AQ Salt yet. I'm gonna try to heal that with cleaner water! I'm not sure, there isn't anything in the tank or on him. :\ I'll add the stress coat, thank you!
