I LOVE the garlic. I roast the elephant cluster on the grill with a little olive oil. BUT to add that to my tank kinda threw me off.

I thought that the extract would be some special pastuerized, filtered, pure, and non-odor magic liquid. I was SO wrong! It looks like I can make some fairly easily with a little oil, water, garlic, and a food processer. I am willing to go this route because the dropper bottle was for sale for $14.99 at the LFS. FIFTEEN BUCKS for GARLIC?

After I about bowled myself over with smelling it I gently put it back on the shelf and could not help laughing at the price.

My fish didn't like the real real garlic juice that i extracted from real real garlic. They would spit the food out a few time before consuming it. I don't know why. The liquid from the bottles has a different smell.

Anyway, try making your own then let me know how your fish like it

WOW you weren;t kidding... but, I absolutely love garlic and I will admit at one moment, I was considering adding it to my food too. (I checked ingredients, seems to be garlic and vinigar) lol I wont really do it, but man o man, i was tempted.!

Garlic

LOL boy did I laugh when I read how you realized the smell, because it reminded me of my wife's face when she did what you did. I need to laugh thanks

I do not use garlic with every feeding since my fish are not too picky, so far. I do use it more often when I have a new fish added to the tank especially in my QT. I have also read that it can help in making the fish more healthy, I believe someone here posted that as well. Good luck and dont spill it on the carpet.

Good Luck
