Garlic is an ingredient in NLS Algae wafers, as well as NLS Small fish formula. But you can't taste it.

Cobalt Aquatics pleco wafers already has garlic ingredients mixed in. A strong garlic smell every time I open it and my plecos attack it when I drop it in tanks. I also use Garlic Guard with a teaspoon of Epsom salt mixed with warm water and soaks for 15 min for my Malawi's when they have digestive "bloat". The Epsom salt encourages them to poop. Not sure if it works on plecos though

I tired it and for the first time my bristle nose ate fresh veggies! It seemed to make them grow over night! The other fish loved the garlic too. So happy I read this
