Who uses Garlic Why and How???
 
I"ve read some about Garlic benefits for fish. I see some use Garlic Guard and several other garlic products that several fish web sites advertise. Some prepare there own from raw garlic and some buy pure garlic in small containers as long as it is pure with no additives.
What methods do the people that use it use to prepare it and how often? Do you use juice only or do you also used crushed to a fine pulp and feed it that way. I also see some soak flake food and feed it that way or mixing it in with blood worms and other thawed frozen foods.
Whats the best way and again and how often to feed garlic ??

Have used minced Garlic with medicated foods in fishes where internal parasites were suspected.
For me,, it required that no other foods were offered, and fishes were fed mixture of this for around four weeks ,twice each day.
Was only way I could get fish to eat medication that most agree is more helpful if ingested, as opposed to treating the water.
