Recently I started a thread about ich in my tank and was discussing and reading up on the use of garlic to boost fish health. Anyways since I had a hard time finding garlic extract and I am in a small town where the fish store here is not that good, I thought I would make a short write up about how to make liquid garlic to soak your fish food in. It's really easy. Time: 10 Minutes Cost: $2 Items Required: Garlic Cloves Garlic Press Food Processor (You don't have to have this but it will work better) Small Container Tea Strainer (Or some type of fine strainer) First pull the garlic cloves apart and mince several cloves into a food processor using the garlic press. How much you use depends on how much you want to make. Next add a small amount of RO/DI water. Only add a little bit, just not too much or the mixture will be to dilute. I would say probably like 2 Tbsp of water for every clove you mince. Now run the food processor for several seconds to blend and mix it up really well. Next pour the mixture through a tea strainer and into your container to remove the garlic pieces. Voila, you have liquid garlic. I keep mine in the fridge and whenever I feed the fish I add a very small amount in a cup with a tiny bit of tank water to soak the food in. It's very strong so you probably don't need much. Like I said, you could use other tools other than the ones above but this is just the way I did it. Same with the mixtures, experiment with the ratio of water to garlic until you find something that works best for you. Garlic is cheap and this works great.
