    Talking Nori

    Okay, I know TANGS and LAWNMOWERS love NORI SEAWEED but now most of my fish dine on it. For example, MULTI COLOR WRASSE,ANTHIA,CLOWNS and even my CHROMIS will get small pieces floating. Crazy fish.

    My tangs can't wait for me to get my hand off the clip. They are right there eating while I am still pressing the clip onto the glass. My school of chromis line up to eat it. My Heniochus even eats the stuff, but he won't eat Spirulina flakes.

    nori

    no, do not boil it or it will just fall apart. Make sure you buy the stuff they wrap SUSHI in and not the actual seaweed KAULERPRA. I try'd the SEAWEED hard dry stuff and the fish never even looked at it and it was as hard as nails!

    I'd say the nori is WAY better than flakes for the tangs. When it is on a clip they can graze on it all day as they would on a reef. It's a more natural feeding habit for tangs. As well, it is a more natural food for them. The other fish like wrasses and anthias probably would do better on flakes, simply because flakes are more nutritionally complete for omnivorous and carnivorous fish.

    well the advantage of the flakes would be that they are enriched as they are intended to provide fish with all the nutrition they need, Nori is intended for sushi.

    I'll have to disagree a tad. NORI while made for SUSHI is just dry'd/roasted pure seaweed and has all the same vitamins and nutrients as it is in the Ocean and they eat it there. Enriched doesn't always mean a good thing.[enriched white bread] for example is crappy for ya. A balanced diet of course is needed for fish But Nori is awsome stuff and is basically the same item they sell at LFS under the name SEAWEED SELECTS!.
