    Actually the first paper is exactly you wouldn't bother to use as a dip.

    Here is the quote "Thus, compared with malachite green (0.1 mg/L), higher concentrations of both sodium percarbonate and garlic extract are needed."

    I'm more interested in the sentence "Garlic extract had no effect in low amounts (30 mg/L), but at high concentrations (117 and 570 mg/L) it killed the tomocysts within 24 h"

    That's my personal preference though.

    Exactly. But it's not controlled by the FDA so a traditional doctor can't be bothered to consider it.

    My Point. You do not need a doctor to purchase it as it is basically a foodstuff.

    LOL, no they wouldn't, it would be to cheap to prescribe. You always need a pill.

    My question is, what about honey? NOTHING can live in honey.
    what about for fish?

    Also, I think its time for the OP to conduct an experiment since "no one knows the TRUE proven answer to this question".
    Why not add small amounts of garlic (maybe just minced), put it in a tea bag or something, hang it in the water. That way when it decomposes eventually just pull it out. See if it worked or not.

    No, the drug companies would make it into a pill... brand it and copyright it.... put all kinda ads on tv and your doctor would be prescribing it....

    BTW, https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Clostridium_botulinum Clostridium Botulinum lives in honey. That's why your pediatricians tells you not to feed them to babies.

    hmm... Well that's cool! I was watching Justin Rhodes last night on youtube (idk if anyone has heard of him on here, cool channel go check it out) and he was interviewing this guy who had, some variety of European bees (super aggressive) and he said in his vid that nothing lives In honey (hence why I said that). But now I know this, I guess he was wrong? hm.
    Well anyway Faebinder thanks for posting the link and such. My parents didn't know about this either, and there bee keepers!

    No new information on Garlic's possible effects on external parasites, but I did run across this-

    "The 96 hrs LC50 of the aqueous garlic extract for juveniles of C. carpio was estimated to be 253.19 mg/L. Furthermore, fish exposed to the different concentrations of the aqueous garlic extract exhibited abnormal behavior. The susceptibility of C. carpio to the lethal effects of the aqueous garlic extract was duration and concentration-dependent. Fish mortality was found to be associated with the decrease in pH values"
    .

    This is referring to an immersion bath which is the subject of this thread.

    Garlic's effective use as an ingested prebiotic has been established when used at levels not exceeding 3% of total diet.
