Who uses garlic guard?

Hi guys. Yesterday I went to the LFS and I got some Garlic Guard. I finally found it after like almost 2 years. I heard that this is really good stuff. I open up the bottle and I must say.. it smells good. I was wondering though does this also help boost up the immune system too or do I to get the other stuff that it says to get in the back of the bottle?

Thanks.

the best preventative of disease is, has always been, and will always be... clean water :) According to their website, the garlic guard is primarily a flavor enhancer, for finicky fish. It is also to make other oral medications palatable. I dont see that there is any harm in using it to soak frozen food in, but I dont think it will instantly eradicate fishy funk :)

Garlic is a natural immune building food. Though it's not medication by no means, but it does help build the fish's immune system. keeps the fish strong, and since fish love garlic, it's great.

Best treatment for ich for me has always been, temperature rise in aquarium, feed plenty of garlic infused foods and turn off the lights. I've stopped having illness problems.

Clean water is always best, and no matter what you do or what you feed your aquarium with, you'll have a better time with clean water. Otherwise, no matter what you feed, your fish would die sooner than later.
