I tried to buy some Garlic Extreme from my dad's friend's LFS
but he told me not to waste money on buy those but to buy "real" garlics then take the juice out myself. I got about 2 teaspoon of garlic juice from a like 15 garlics... It was alot of work just to get a lil of juice. Anyway, I don't know the procedure of how to soak fish food in garlic. Can I soak flakes too or can i only soak live foods? This is what i did:
I missed some enriched, frozen brine shrimps with some phytoplankton in a cup with 2 teaspoons of garlic juice. I let the cup sit there for about 2 hours then i spilled the solution in the cup to another cup with a brineshrimp net cover on top to get the food out. I kept the juice for next times
Once the food seem to dry alil, i put it into the tank. The fishes didn't like it much. The first few bites, they spit it right back. Is this normal b/c this is the first time they try garlic? They started eating slowly afterward. The food makes the water abit cloudier than it usually does without garlic. My skimmer pulled out a good amount of skimmate 1 hour after the treat.
So, am i doing it right? If not, how do u soak foods? What else should i do to make it into optimal feeding? I currently have Tetra marine flake, microplankton, enriched/frozen brineshrimps (i hate this stuff, some of it is too big for my clowns. Shouldn't have bought it!)
Thanks alot guys
