ry this: take a peeled clove of garlic (not chopped or crushed) and put it in your shoe where toes meet the foot....then count how long it takes to taste it in your mouth! Only a minute or two and the volatile oils/essence has passed through your skin and into blood and lymph systems.
I so have to try this now!
Anyways, she looks the same but acts totally normal and seems to be eatting the smaller NLS pellets but not the wardly pellets.
Started kannaplex about 2 days ago. She looks like her scales are gonna go flying off at any minute BUT her behavior is still pretty good. Not Clamped, eats, swims around - not too much but she is alert and her flipper fins go a mile a minute.
I've had fish with dropsy before and within 3 or so days they are laying on the bottom of the tank, barely alive. Not so with her. At least not yet.
I've never heard of garlic for fish, but if you do use it try to make it fresh because the anti bac/fung/par compound called allicin disintegrates very quickly. I use it whenever I feel a cold coming on. I mince the garlic, wait half a hour for allicin to form, then down it. Truly disgusting but effective.
