* Delivers the nutritional benefits of raw garlic to fishes primarily by being applied to their food.
* Consists solely of preserved extract of raw garlic with a small amount of vitamin-C as a preservative.
* Does not require refrigeration.
* Formulated by a marine scientist.

Technical Background:

Brightwell Aquatics GARLICPOWER consists solely of the preserved extract of raw garlic. Garlic has long been believed by many to have medicinal properties, and clinical research is beginning to support some of the claims that have been made by garlic's supporters. It was once thought that the active component in garlic was a compound called Allicin, which is formed by the combination of the amino acid Alliin with the enzyme Alliinase that occurs when the garlic is damaged (i.e. cut, processed, bitten, etc.). Research has shown that allicin is unstable and has a very short life, beginning to degrade immediately after formation (a process sped up by exposure to heat; conversely, refrigeration prolongs the life of allicin, though not likely enough to ensure its presence in a garlic extract product); the result of this degradation is a number of compounds called Diallyl Sulphides. These compounds also exhibit beneficial properties, and though not as effective as allicin, their use in medical treatments, and the exact nature of the benefits provided, are the subject of ongoing research.
In aquaria, the use of garlic is often associated with improving the health of fishes, particularly in systems experiencing difficulty with parasites. As noted in the Instructions and Guidelines, this product is not intended for use as a medication. Garlic has also been shown to motivate newly-added and/or finicky fishes to feed; this is accomplished by soaking food in a small amount of garlic extract for several minutes and then feeding, and the results are often very gratifying. Note that while garlic may increase the palatability of foods, this approach should not be thought of as a means to circumvent avoiding the purchase of fish species known to have poor survival records in captivity due to their dietary requirements (i.e. various species of coralivorous butterflyfishes, spongivorous angelfishes, etc.). Always research the dietary and environmental needs of fishes before purchasing and introducing them into an aquarium.

Instructions and Guidelines:

To fortify prepared food (recommended): Shake product well before using. Place food in a clean container such as a small bowl or cup and add only enough GARLICPOWER to saturate. Allow at least 5 minutes to elapse before feeding, enabling adequate time for the product to become thoroughly absorbed by the food. Liquid food suspensions may be fortified by adding 1.0 ml (approximately 8 drops) GARLICPOWER per 10 ml of food suspension; stir to mix and allow 5 minutes to elapse before feeding. Maximum benefit of any liquid food suspension is achieved when the food is target-fed to the intended organisms rather than poured into a stream of water and allowed to disperse randomly throughout the aquarium. Over a period of several months, the dosage may be increased by 50% if so desired as long as water quality is monitored and maintained to within the required ranges. Observe water quality carefully at all times, making adjustments as needed. If adding directly to aquarium: Shake product well before using. Add 5 ml (1 capful) of product per 50 US-gallons of aquarium water every other day, or add « that dosage daily. When used in this fashion, 125 ml treats up to 1,250 US-gallons (4,732 L). Observe water quality carefully at all times, making adjustments as needed.
No medicinal claims are made for GARLICPOWER, however fishes showing signs of ectoparasites may benefit from the addition of garlic to their diet (see opposite panel). If ectoparasites are present, GARLICPOWER may be added to food as recommended and dosed directly into aquarium at « the recommended dosage. It is generally recommended that GARLICPOWER be utilized either as a means of fortifying prepared food or to provide benefit by direct addition to the water, but not both except as noted above.

Caution: Keep out of reach of children. Not for human consumption.

Ingredients:

Garlic extract, Ascorbic acid

    This stuff is amazing for tangs or fish that won't eat, but better used preventively as a food supplement on algae sheets or frozen food mixes. Works well as an anti-disease and parasite as well. (Posted on 7/29/2014)
