Yes coffee that is basically what i did. I used a garlic press into a prep bowl scooped up back in the press then to the tank making sure i got most of the juice.

I was pissed beyond belief this morning, the only tank i have set up is my qt, but since he came with a nem my options were severely limited. I gave it a shot and within hrs HUGE difference. I used three cloves in an 18 gal. But the article warns about not knowing how much is too much.. i really dont like that now there are chemicals in my tank that i cant test, even if it is all natural... this alinol or whatever isnt normally in water.

allicin is apparently reactive and unstable by nature, and is only created in garlic when there is impact damage, which is why when you crushed it and then put it in your tank, it released the allicin. my only question is did you place the leaves themselves in the tank or did you just put the puree type liquid in?
either way im going to try it with my 10g first, then move from there
