    Before I take apart my reef, I'd like to try the garlic on my sick fish. How can I do that? Do I season the food with garlic powder? If so, how much?

    I'm also doing a water change today and removing some more of the crushed coral.



    Thanks,
    Tom

    I soak my food in Seachem's Garlic Guard for about 5 minutes prior to feeding.

    I put flakes in a syringe, and then sprinkle a touch of garlic powder over the food. Not much. I suck up some tank water into the syringe, and shake it up. Then I let it sit for awhile, and feed. I saw some ich before I used garlic, and haven't seen it since I started.

    The best way is to soak it in garlic extract, it has a much less pungent odour.
    Ps feeding fish garlic only serves to promote fish health and vitality

    Can I feed garlic to my BTA too?

    I bought the extract and use 2 drops on my food 5 minutes before feeding. Smells like my grandma's house around here with a hint of seafood. Anyway, can I feed the garlic laden food to my bta too?
    Thanks,
    Tom

    I add a few drops of garlic x-treme to the food a few minutes before I feed it to the fish and the corals. I do it this way in all of my tanks weather they are freshwater or my saltwater reef and my fish are very healthy. Yes you can feed the food to your bta this way too.
