    Lab study shows 4 spices show encouraging results against "Streptococcal" out of 10 spices studied. They are listed from most effective to lesser effective - "Cinnimon", "Clove", "Thyme", and "Garlic". See the paper below for more details.

    I know people already use "Garlic" for ich and to boost immune system in fish. Anyone else try any of the spices mention in the paper?

  2. Default another spice article for mold and fungus

    Clove oil is used to euthanize fish.
    A good off the shelf fish food is the best single food for your fish.
    I could say more, but I believe we'd just argue.

    For those who care to actually read research announcements.

    Yes, I'm a bit selective in who or what I believe.
    I am able to check the original sources if I need to as I happen to work in a university research library.

    When fish are ill and need immediate treatment, I believe I'd lay down the $7-10 and get them what has already been tested and proven to work rather than trying something that has "encouraging results". Ick can be devasting to fish within days. Not sure I'd hold my breath waiting for garlic to do anything.

    Well, glofish are used in some sushi now, so garlic and danios might mix.
