Garlic doesn't boost the immune system, at least I have never seen any scientific info supporting that. However, scientists have done experiments demonstrating that garlic can kill parasites.

I would love to read something explaining how garlic boosts the immune system.

It is definitely true though that pathogens are present. Your fish will get sick if stressed. Give them high quality food and water and you will prevent almost all the problems you may encounter.

I'm going thru the same issues in my QT where I'm treating all my fish for Ich with hypo. It's been one week and so far I lost:
1. Flame Angelfish
2. Six line Wrasse
3. Two Chromis

I have 9 Chromis, Algae Blenny, Dr. Fish wrasse, yellow tang, Pacific Blue tang, 2 baby clowns, 1 adult clown, long nose hawkfish, zebra goby. They seem to be OK for now, but I'm not so sure I can keep them in hypo for long. In one week I lost 4 fish. I'm also not sure the hypo is a good treatment for angelfish and wrasse. It seems to affect them the most.
