At least this homeopathic medicine can only harm your dating prospects if you take it. I wonder if it stinks to the fish as well?

Except that garlic is touted as a treatment for disease in fish much the same way melafix / pimafix is. This leads to fish deaths due to marketing.

Ever watch late night tv? We can't even reign in quackery aimed at humans, much less our fish. I never regarded garlic as anything but a possible appetite stimulant, anything more is suspect for sure.

I think the real problem is that garlic can cause serious health problems in fish- marine fish were not meant to digest lipids from terrestrial plants. Consumption of garlic can cause heart and liver problems in marine fish.
