I have only seen research regarding fish. It could apply to inverts as well but im not sure.

Inverts do not need garlic to entice feeding though, atleast ive never seen one that refused to eat lol.

I have a "mentor" who sprays it in with his mysis once a week. He literally has a spray bottle, the one that is used for butter in the stores, and he swears by it. He has three very large tanks the smallest of which is a 800 gallon reef. His tanks are amazing and he has been in the hobby for over 15 years. He says the pros well out way if at all the cons. His fish are all in tip top shape and he nevers ever has any diseases or problems. Just saying
