Garlic Enhancers- best brand??
 
Does anyone have an opinion on which brand of garlic product works best? I'm looking at it as a food enhancer to get the finicky eaters to eat what's good for them. I've seen Garlic Guard, Eco-Garlic, etc.
I'm getting ready to place an on-line order and wanted to know other's opinions... Thanks! :-D

I dont know what works best, but I did buy some Garlic Guard, just because it was cheap. My Belonesox pike will only eat krill, they would much rather have live fish, but I am not giving in to their wishes. I have been putting some Garlic Guard in with their krill, even poring a little of the water mixed with the Garlic Guard into the tank, that their food had thawed in. There is a very noticeable increase in their appetite.

Great, thanks for the info. Garlic Guard is so much cheaper than Eco-garlic. Now that I know that Garlic Guard works I'll go with that. THANKS! :-)

I'm sorry if this is a silly question, but I'm new to the idea of garlic for fish...is it safe for all freshwater fish, or are there certain fish that can't handle garlic? I read on these forums that it can help fish' natural immunity in addition to stimulating their appetite.

aunt kymmie 02-03-2009 11:05 PM

It's not a silly question at all. I know garlic can be used for fresh & saltwater fish but I have no idea if it shouldn't be used with certain species of fish. Anyone??
