there arent any side effects are there because last time i tried to help my tank with kent marine chemicals my shrimp died. $54 bucks down the drain because kent marine says it will help inverts but it ends up killing every one I have. just a little paranoid about putting things in my tank now.

Its been nonscientficly shown to help cure ich and some folks use it as a preventive. I stopped using it simply cause my PBT and other fish for that mater have not shown signs of ich or any other illness for years so i figured why bother.

If you search here for garlic you should find alot of resouces. There is no hard proof as to what it does. Some say it simply boosts the fish's appitite and thus increases its immune system indrectly. Others say the garlic oil is absorbed and released thru the fish's flesh and the ich parasite does not like garlic and thus releases before maturity thus killing it.
