Well I don't know about the studies but my fish are enjoying the change of diet. I'm going to give them some frozen brine shrimp and see how they like that. My angels sure enjoy that.

Garlic contain allicin which acts as an antibacterial agent. This boosts the immune system in fish as well as humans. Whilst it does not kill ich it does help fish fight it. Prevention is always better rather than curing it after the outbreak.

Again sorry to say but this has never been proven at all.

Allicin Defined:

Garlic (Allium sativum), like other plants, has an exquisite defense system composed of as many different components as the human immune system. In order to protect itself from insects and fungi, garlic enzymatically produces allicin when it is injured. Thus, allicin is mother nature's insecticide. Allicin was discovered in 1944 by Cavallito et al.1 who first noted its potent antimicrobial activity. Allicin received a patent for its antifungal activity in test tubes. However, no clinical trials have been performed with allicin and it was never developed into a drug or commercial product due to its instability, inability to be absorbed, and offensive odor. Allicin itself is considered to be of limited value inside the body and is presently regarded by the scientific community as just a transient compound which rapidly decomposes to other compounds.11

You can make a DIY fish trap out of a plastic bottle rather easy. Google or YouTube it, make one, catch it, quarantine it, and medicate or hypo.
