    garlic in fish food ?

    i`ve read plenty of posts about adding garlic to fish food to boost immune, and appetite in fishes. but i have no idea how to do it , do you use fresh garlic, powder, supplements, oils...ect ? and how do you add it and how much to add and how often ? i feed my fishes formula 1 in the morning and frozen ominvoir food in the night and would like to start adding garlic to thier diet but just dont know how and what to use.

    I soak my frozen food in Garlic Extreme as it thaws out. A lot of folks use fresh garlic. I will probably do that when this is gone as its expensive and SMELLS BAD!

    i mush up fresh garlic and mix it with their food soak it and feed it to them. some eat the fresh garlic straight up. i do this maybe twice a month. i use selcon too between the garilic. one week they get the garlic soaked food the next they get selcon soaked.

    i use kyolic garlic tablets,i dissolve 1 tablet per 2ozs of ro water, been doing it for 5yrs now approx.
    i add several drops to food,
    also i add a full tablet to aquarium water with no harm being done once a month.i had a powder blue tang with ich, i do believe this helped cure the fish, now i add a tablet once a month.
    sometimes i also add a few drops of selcon along with the garlic.

    Re: garlic in fish food ?

    I use Kents Garlic Extreme and add 2-3 drops per small dish as my fish food thawes. Once it's thawed I then pour it through a strainer and rinse it with a swig of RO water.
