Whats the deal w/ garlic?

I had seen some prior threads about adding some garlic to seaweed to entice tangs to munch on it?
How is this accomplished?

I use a product called Garlic Extreme on dried nori. It's supposed to boost the fishes immune system. I have used it to fend off Ich outbreaks by using it at the first signs of Ich, like a fish flashing or a few white spots on a fish.

Garlic is an attractant as well as a medication, garlic soaked bait will net any fish within scent distance and the biggest fish always hits first.

The garlic oil will bring the tang out and to the food

I use Kent Marine Garlic Xtreme, all my fish love it. It also gets the more finicky herbivores to eat.
