Goldfish should not eat ginger and refined garlic powder has little nutritional value than fresh garlic juice (the liquid left over by garlic cloves) the food should be soaked in the garlic for 10 minutes then fed. Although i would recommend using Seachem Garlic gaurd from the local fish store
Please follow a proper quaretine procedure before adding new fish into the main tank and do not add harsh chemicals like MG or MB to avoid killing off beneficial bacteria. Quaretine fish should be treated with an internal parasite medication for 2 weeks and follow another 2 weeks in quaretine.
Garlic itself isnt bad, but I would highly recommend avoiding adding garlic water into any body of water the fish are in. Raw minced garlic can be fed as an occasional appetite booster or a homeopathic method to paralyze some internal parasites.
