kurty- those lesions are where the ich actually burrowed into the fishs skin and implanted itself, you mentioning that leads me to believe that not only did the garlic drive away the cysts, but also either killed or drove away the actual parasite itself. id def make sure they keep eating well.
buffy- lol i dont blame ya at all, you've had youre own issues and problems with your tank, so youve been just as busy as me lol.
UPDATE--- currently am soaking some mysis shrimp and garlic-infused pellets in the freshly crushed garlic...wow it makes this awful pasty liquid, not far from sap, that once you get it on your hands... forget getting it out. guess thats one of the helping factors though of garlic, it can permeate flesh extremely easily.

well ALL the fish tore up the garlic pellets.. wanna know how much of a fattie my tang is?? he poops everytime i feed them...now thats excitement lol. dosed the 10g with garlic and fed the mysis shrimp to the butterfly. only thing im scared of is dosage... i have NO clue how much garlic to put in the 125... if this garlic has a positive affect, ill start dosing daily and go from there.... so thats the prognosis so far. and i tell ya, coming home to my engineer goby free swimming REALLY scared me last night.

After the first hr in tank the clown hasnt stopped bouncing on the nem, i was also assuming the patasite itself had left my fishy host butwas wondering if others felt the same way.

I used three cloves in an 18 gal, also some pics in my build, the before is kinda poor quality...

I will qt EVERY fish from here on out... no questions about that. The garlic seems to have slowed down the ich, but im thinking that I haven't dosed enough to actually start killing it... slowly adding garlic by little increments. Everyone is still eatingand behaving normally.

SOOO ive just decided that im gonna bring the 55 up and xfer the live rock into it, then hypo the dt. theres no sense continuing hypo on 2 of the fish when obviously its in my main tank.. its gonna set me back a bit in terms of establishment but thats an acceptable price for me to pay.
