Vita-Chem??

Does anyone use Vita-Chem and Garlic Guard? I saw a video of a guy that soaks the pellets in vita-chem and garlic guard, what is it good for? and would you soak the food in it everyday or how often exactly?

I know the Garlic Guard is to add flavor to the food to entice picky eaters. Tho, I thought the Vita-Chem was supposed to dose the tank, not the food... But I've never used it so I don't know about that for sure and I might be thinking of something else... I also don't know what that does, but the Garlic Guard is, from what I understand, mostly just a flavor enhancer/enticing supplement

Garlic also helps guard against internal infection and enhances digestion. It's not necessary, but....

Vita Chem is used by some fastidious keepers. Not sure how much gets used when it's in the water. Soaking food in it seems extreme. (I stand to be informed.) It used to be more important before high-quality food was available. Nowadays New Life Spectrum, Omega One, Seachem, Northfin, and others sell really complete nutrition in a pellet.
