Yes it will stimulate them to feed, but over the long haul it's not a good idea, it can cause catastrophic results.
Garlic is an immune system booster, for humans and fish alike.
Glad you got him to eat!!
Best of luck in the future!

The Powder tangs ( blue and brown ) are one of the harder to keep varieties.

I had a thread going a few days ago about my new powder also having ich. I'm treating the tank with Stop Parasite and the spots went away but came back today. I'm going to continue treatment and probably do a second run of it and hope for the best for him and the other inhabitants in the tank

Guess we should send prayers to the fish gods for both of us.
