The directions on the bottle say either add 2 drops of garlic xtreme per teaspoon of food, or add 1 drop per 10 gallons of water directly to the tank if fish are not eating? So should I add 5 drops directly to water(it's a 55 gal fowlr)? Or soak the food in it to try and get her to eat? She isn't eating at all but healthy as could be just seems uninterested. If you guys do recommend adding it directly to the water , am I supposed to feed immediately after?

Tried a small 4 gal water change last night with the water being only 76 degrees (instead of 78 degrees) in hopes that the slightly cooler water would stimulate the lemonpeel and get him swimming around and perhaps curious/ interested in eating. But after the water change instead if stimulating the fish in hopes of getting her exploring that tank she actually hid in the rock for than ever and was startled. So I didn't end up feeding after that and just turned the lunar lights on and left her alone for the rest of the night. I will try feeding with the garlic xtreme tonight, however I am starting to get worried because this is day 4 in the tank without eating. Am I doing anything wrong? Is there anything else I can try? Am i doing something wrong? I don't want to see this fish get sick and not thrive in my tank.

Most strips already have it. All other food soak them.
