    I recall a few posts where members said it was okay to feed the little chunks - but no guarantees a picky eater will eat it. :rolleyes:

    Maybe you could squish the little chunks between two spoons and soak the squished mess in a bit of water. I know they make garlic presses, but I think two spoons would work just as well. I'd use plastic ones so you don't have to worry about dish soap. :)

    Sorry, I don't have much better ideas. Tell Clayton I said hello. :-*

    LOL the spoon idea is great! should i use tank water? probably... yup, i will squish garlic then LOL

    we have some garlic powder that we use for seasoning our food... could i just add water to that? i know it sounds dumb :giggle:

    clayton says hi back and thank you :D

    ??? I never thought about dried garlic flakes or garlic seasoning! Hmm, I guess read the ingredients to make sure it doesn't have anything else in it. If it's just garlic, it seems like it should work. I'd definitely wait for more advice on that, though. :;dk

    I use crushed garlic with a small amount of tank water to soak in. I tried minced garlic and crushing my own, but the fish wouldn't eat the pure garlic pieces. The crushed is so gooey that they seem to get it all.

    If you get garlic sure it is pure and only garlic.

    Its pure garlic alright. So i should mix it with some tank water and dip his food in it?

    100% pure garlic juice in a spray bottle (makes pretty good garlic toast, too) can be found at  .
