If your fish won't eat their veggies, or you want to treat them...

... Try crushing half a clove of fresh garlic into the water before you use it blanch spinach. Mine go crazy for it! :nana

It works well for getting them to eat all sorts of things. It works well for a sick fish that you want to eat peas for digestive issues. Garlic is used as an additive to many fish baits for a reason.

Yep. Garlic is the fish cure-all for picky eaters or sick fish. It's also a very healthy addition to their diet when you use fresh garlic. My fish get a little every time I am cooking with it, and eat the minced bits like there's no tomorrow. :D They love when I add a small clove to the water I blanche their kale in or to the repashy water.

Can never go wrong with garlic!

So, you know how after you mince garlic for a recipe, your hands smell like it for a few days? Would the fish have a good enough sense of smell that they'd come zipping over to your hands for a day or two, or would it only draw them in when it's "fresh"?

Not sure, but garlic smells pretty strong, so maybe. Many Koko's people have successfully used garlic on their hands to tame skittish fish!
