Garlic... How to do it right..

Hey everyone I have another question. When my Heni was sick LiveAquria told me to give my fish garlic along with their food. I am just unsure as to how to do it right. I don't know if that will hurt them if I give them too much. My clowns seem to love it but my Yellow Tang does. Any suggestions will be helpful. Thanks! Sue

You can't really add too much garlic. I use a product by Seachem called Garlic Guard, there are a few others out there. Some will get cloves of garlic and squeeze the juice out of it.

I used fresh garlic cloves and a garlic press. I gently pressed two or three cloves of garlic 2X. Press the cloves one time and then scoop up the pulp of the garlic and run it thru the press again. Use slow steady pressure vs a quick thrust.

Then soak the food in this garlic water.

I make my own food and I just add some minced garlic to the blender much. About 2 teaspoons...
