Here is my input on the matter for what is worth.
We folks who have aquariums with saltwater fish in them soak our food in garlic when we have problems getting a fish to eat. For whatever reason they will almost always eat food soaked in garlic when they would not have other wise. I along with thousands of other fellow reefers do this at one time or another. In many cases when a new fish is added he may starve him self to death. However back to the garlic soak on the food and you are good.......now we don't continue to do this as for it is linked to organ failure in the reef fish if used on a daily basis.
