No it will have no affect. In order for garlic to work, the natural oils must be ingested by the fish. Simply placing garlic in the tank will have no affect.
Btw the fish that seems to have ich parasite is a common clown fish ( orange brown in colour with white stripe ), i don't quite know the actual name for that type of clown.
It would either be an A. ocellaris
or A. percula
. You also cannot just treat one fish. Even though they may not show signs of the parasite, all fish
must be treated and the tank left fallow for 4 weeks to ensure the parasite dies off.
