Acclimated fish and stress coat?

Hey folks happy thx giving , just wondering about the benefits of aloe vera on newly added fish.
Even though they will be drip acclimated for an hour prior to going in the tank, do you think its worth also adding API stress coat (or some other product) into the tank at dunk time, just to keep their mucoprotein coating intact?

thanks

I never be-leaved in adding un necessary chemicals to your tank and most lfs add it to the water in the bag to replace the slime they lose when netted
also depends on the fish a large tough cichilid that is treated gently probly does not need it a much more sensitive fish like a neon that was just scooped up might

I don't use anything either Ruffers, I also think 20 minutes drip would be fine, cuts down on stress for the fish.......just my thoughts
