The only problem I've seen with that is that the effectiveness of allicin actually reaching the white spots and attacking it is questionable at best through ingestion. The article says it does wonders for protecting against stomach and internal parasites, but iffy when it comes to ich I am however gonna still soak my garlic infused pellets with actual crushed garlic cloves tm, then also add some to the water as well. And to whoever mentioned having foreign chems in their water that they can't test for, after a month or two of pace, those hems should be almost gone.

Hahaha. Everyone is still eating like fat-so's and still swimming normally so who knows. I've calmed down considerably now and have a more positive mindset about this

Good, glad to hear that. Usually ppl freak out, do 50 different things to their tank only to make it worse
Like I said, it's hard to do nothing and to look at them while they are sick, but I wouldn't think doing anything is the best solution right now. Please keep us updated

mine has little lesions on it where the ich spots where? Im hoping thats a positive, but hopefully that in tank garlic is doing wonders to keep bacteria out as well!!!

and huma it was me who mentioned things we cant test for... i figured people feed it to their fish so it cant be too bad, and liek you said after time the pwcs will remove them to the point of near non-existence.
