It's hard for me to tell how much garlic I should put on food....any advice?
Good question.I put 2/3 drops of garlic extreme on whatever i'm feeding them that day,let it soak a bit (15/20 min) then add a little tank water and dump it in.
for me............none! But that's just me
X2. Garlic is an appetite stimulant, nothing more. If your fish are already eating, there's no use.
^Agreed with both,I did forget to mention that I only occasionally use it,mainly only when I add or have a sick fish.
X3 I've never used garlic for any tank-related purpose.
To answer the question in your thread title, yes. Too much fed too often can lead to fatty liver disease in saltwater fish.
Personally, I like garlic on just about everything I eat. If they can smell it oozing out of your pores the next day, it was probably too much.
Sorry, couldn't resist... ;D;D;D
I am trying to stimulate two fish I have that appear to have a little ich issue going on.....thanks for the replies! I haven't really used it before so wasn't sure about how much was too much.....
What kind(s) of fish and what type(s) of food?
FWIW, I've always found the best appetite stimulant to be a variety of quality foods from the proper group(s) for the fish species. I.E., mixing marine sponge, algae, brine, mysis, clam, squid and krill for pigmy angels.
