Improve the quality of the food. Variety and quality... What do you feed them now? What type of fish?

If they are fed well and the tank is cared for properly, they should need nothing to boost their immune system. If you are trying to treat a specific condition (flukes, etc.), you might want to look at Selcon.

Garlic also supposedly boosts the immune system.

Key word.

I've yet to see any papers of merit written on the topic.
