Is Garlic bad for SW fish?

Hey Guy's

I've been reading a thread on Ultimatereef and they are saying that Garlic is really bad for fish. I 've read here on ThePufferForum loads of times that it's great to get a puffer eating.

What do you think?

I've seen tons of threads recommending garlic with SW fish.

Some very well known SW fish food contains garlic. I don't think they would be that popular if it contained something you shouldn't feed SW fish.

+1 to above comments, with the warning that even good things can be over-used.
