Every aquarist sooner or later may experience fish mortality due to a cause in the carrying of fish. There are many ways to avoid this, but my preference is to use garlic oil in high doses. This is a safe and natural solution and is used as a soothing agent in the recovery of tumors or wounds from fish. Garlic oil (active substance, eugenol *) can be found in pools or in transit.
When applying, we should mix the water with alcohol by dissolving the garlic oil in water in a nice way. Vodka can be used for this. Too much alcohol can cause the fish to become stressed and disturbed. So you need to be careful. If we think we add too much alcohol to the water, it will suffice to add a little more garlic oil. Garlic oil is a very safe sedative. After you have removed your fish from the packaging water, the aquarium starts to revive after the first hour. You will get it from your aquarium (pH value is 7,0-7,3 Ph is the reason for preference.) Empty 3.7 liters of water into a suitable container. In another bowl, stir 2-3 ml of garlic oil with 8 ml of vodka. Pour the mixture into the water-filled container and mix it a little. You will carry it for fish, take some of the mixture you prepared and put your fish into it and start watching, your fish will become unconscious in a few minutes. With this method, I did not have any factions fighting against the restless. If you do this, you will have a minimum rate of breeding.
Darkfellow is a volatile oil called “eugenol” which gives the smell and taste. If the dried buds are crushed and subjected to water vapor distillation, a volatile oil of about 14-20% is called clove extract. This essential oil contains 80-90% eugenol and 3% acetyl eugenol. Eugenol is a fragrant, strong antiseptic and analgesic substance.
