Stess Coat

I was at a pet store yesterday and I saw something called stress coat. What is it and how is it used?

Ooh, I use stress coat! If the brand is API, it's pretty much stuff that removes chlorine and heavy metals from the water, and it has additives to make the fish produce a healthier slime coat on it's body. It's also supposed to have a calming effect on the fish, but that part may just be rumor :P

I use it too. Not sure if it's true as well, but I didn't find a review that said it could hurt it. I like it =]
