garlic paste

Have been slowly experimenting with various fresh food on my loaches (clowns, sidthimunkii) using the occasional ripe avocado, banana, mashed peas, bits of tangerine, and I recalled reading about a guy who used to make his own fish food....and he used a bit of garlic.
Well, we had some organic garlic paste with no additives in the fridge, so I put a bit in and lo and behold they do seem to think its a bit of candy. Whether it does them any good or not we shall have to see but I wonder if it can affect any internal parasites...hopefully adversely!
