two things that i know of. The fish love the smell of it (for us non-fish type it will make you gag) and entices them to eat. It will also help boost their immune system. Just good for their overall health as i understand it.

Yeah they call it garlic guard or something like that. I'm sure the LFS will have it.

Yes. Kent's Garlic Xtreme. I soak my nori in it before I feed.

You can also use the garlic juice or oil that`s sold at supermarkets. A little (a few drops) goes a long way. It supposedly stimulates fish to feed and as mentioned above that it`s a boost to their immune system.
