Good news indeed. I second the OSO spirulina flake Mike suggested. It is the only flake I feed in my tank and is a great veggie suppliment at feeding time.

As for keeping the nori in the clip, I use a half-sheet at a time. I then fold that in half, then form a triangle folding it corner to corner, then make a smaller triangle by folding it half using the other corners. I then clip it at the open end of the last fold, leaving the unbound edges free. The fish can then tear off a piece from any one of several sheets.

It holds up much better this way, though the tang or FoxFace will tear off a large piece on occasion. That usually leads to the other one grabbing the opposite end of the torn piece and watching a tug of war between the two. Lot's of fun to watch. Some smaller pieces do end up as floaters and the coral beauty or blue tang (still a juvenile) go chasing after if one of the bigger guys doesn't. Still some always makes it to the overflow where it get stuck and the snails then take over and finish it off.

There is a definite pecking order here with the Sailfin Tang and Foxface Lo as co-equals at the top, followed by the blue tang (now) and then the coral beauty.

I've heard of taking a piece and rolling it up tightly, then rubber banding that to a piece of rock.

Either method makes the fish work a bit to get their share.

A 1/2 sheet I think would be quite a bit too much for 1 PBT and 1 Coral Beauty though....

I usually take a 1-2" Wide by 2-3" Long piece fold it in 1/2 then clip it. The problem is after a couple of hours it gets real soft, and one peck at it after that and its floating..

You should try rolling it into a tight tube so it will hold together longer.

I tried the rolling into a tube, and it works better than just hanging a piece loose, but still not soo great.

Next I tried the Nori Finger Football, only in a version 1/4 sheet, and that works the best at holding together.


P.S. Are all heaters tempature controlled, or do some work on a timer basis? The reason I ask is because The 300w heater I am using, I can see running when the tank is at 80 degrees (While the MH's are on), Yet when the MH's are shut off the tank maintains 78.6. So I'm wondering if this heater works on a timer to maintain heat vs temp controlled!?
