Garlic- how much, how often, and how

How much, how often, and how do you incorporate garlic into your feeding plan?

I use Kents Garlic Xtreme ... stuff is strong!

Follow recommended dosage. 1-2 drops per gallon and when I feed every other day I usually drop the garlic right on the food let it soak for a while and then drop it in! The fish go nutz!

depending on what type of garlic I believe there are a few options...

one is to pour the garlic concentrate into your foods as they thaw, or soak the nori in the juice a few hours before you feed...

the other is to throw cloves into the blender mush.

At least that is what I have read.

I use garlic guard once in a wile... I soaked my pellet food in it for several min.. Pellet food soaked it up very well so the fish get a good dose of the stuff.

I usually soak the food in it then have the food in a small measuring cup and swish it with some sw...so the food dont float at the top if your using flake food. HTH

I use Kents Garlic Xtreme too and put about 3 drops in the food to soak. I use it with every feeding and I feed every other day. Have been using it for over a year now and the fish seems to be healthier after I started using it.
