it really works! at first i thought my tang wouldnt get marine ick, but like many other peoples tangs mine got a slight case of it. i read that you can treat it with copper, or a controversial way was garlic. i decided to try garlic. i chopped up a bit of a clove into microscopic pieces, and let it stick to some pellets. after 2 feeding of it the ick cleared fully. now the stupid ick wont come back. i think he got it from the stress of the move.

the garlic doesnt directly attack the ick but it boosts the immune system.
