I dont really know those fish, but 5 ml in a half a bottle of prime is not alot, and it would be so diluted it probably would not really harm them.
A bottle is 50, half is 25. So 1:5. If you are changing 10 gallons you would have 20 drops so one ml.
37,850 ml in ten gallons, so in the 20 ml you would use about 0.05 I believe would be garlic. So 0.0001321% would be garlic, not enough to hurt the fish.
That goes for any tank, I just chose ten cause it is easy to work with.

I'm not familiar with the majority of those fish either. But if you have anything you know to be sensitive and picky about water conditions I wouldn't do it. You could try it with a tank with hardier fish first and see if there are any ill effects. Plus, I can't imagine sulfer+ garlic smells good anyway.
