Feeding Garlic #1
How does one feed the fish with garlic and does the wtaer not smell? Read on one of the forums about liquid garlic. Is it available at the lfs and can it be given to goldfish and tropicals? What are the benefits of feeding them garlic?
Thanks.....

Re: Feeding Garlic #2
I usually squeeze out a bit of juice when I'm pressing garlic and mix it in with the fish's food. They love it when I give them garlicky carrots

It helps boosts their immune system and it helps fend off a few parasites too.

Re: Feeding Garlic #5
How often would you feed them garlic and can it be mixed with food for goldfish & tropicals?

Can it be used to fend off vampire batfish?

If it has fins and swims I am interested in it.

Re: Feeding Garlic #8
OMG! You've heard of the vampire batfish too?!?!?!?!?!? I want one so bad... but the nocturnal vision goggles are Soooo expensive and I wouldn't ever be able to admire it with out them (you have to keep the batfish in absolute darkness or they burn to death)...

/grin

But that is interesting about feeding fish garlic.

Re: Feeding Garlic #9
I have given our goldfish garlic once and never again!

I have a jar of minced garlic that I keep in the fridge so I gave them a broccoli floret dipped in the juice.

They went mad for it but the water absolutely reaked so I had to do a 70% water change the next day.

Sorry fishes but you aren'g getting that again.
