When I feed mysis to my various stuff(auto changed it to "when I feed my sis to my various stuff..." lol)I soak it in garlic for hours, usually enough for the liquid to be gone and just plump garlicky mysis(my fish love mysis with their garlic), and without thinking had fed the mysis to my corals as well. They seem to be fine and as happy as with non-garlic mysis, so I continue to when I forget to get extra for them that I don't soak. Ive been looking it up and I can't find anything other than people talking about feeding garlic stuff to the fish in the tanks, or adding some extract to the water, but this would be a significantly higher dosage of garlic, than that. Is this risky? Can garlic soaked foods hurt/damage/ kill corals? I don't do it often, maybe once every week or 2, but if it's safe, or even good, I would definitely do it more often! Does anyone have any info or thoughts on the matter?

Does anyone have any thoughts about it, even if no one has any 1st hand experience, or heard anything about it?

Never heard anything of the sort. You're first. What have you observed?

Nothing negative. They appear to be just as happy to eat it, with no bad side effects(yet). Ive been too afraid to make an actual regimen out of it to see how they respond long-term, but I think I'll go ahead and see how it goes with a single coral for awhile. I don't have any duplicate corals to make a real experiment from, but it's a start. I'm pretty confident I'll be able to tell if growth rate, or colors, or some other variables have any significant abnormality in some way.
