Garlic soaked pellets?

My betta hasn't been very interested in eating pellets, and I read that garlic might change that, so how do you guys do it? I mean how do you make the garlic for the pellets to be soaked in? Any specifics?

A jar of minced garlic should be good to soak them in :).

Theres also some kind of garlic fish soak you can buy. Dont remember the name.

I'd have to blend it, right? Any "type" of garlic?

It's called GarlicGuard by SeaChem but I don't think it's very unnecessary if there are other options. :P

I only have real garlic right now, cloves and all. Do I just blend it with tank water?

It's garlic juice really.. Once you get it, you just dip the pellet in it and serve. The garlic helps boost the immune system, and makes the betta crave for the food. ^.^
