Any success feeding Caulerpa to tangs?

Has anyone had success feeing Caulerpa to their Tangs? I have a refugium with chaeto and was thinking of adding Caulerpa to use as food for my Tang. I have a Naso who will only eat Nori and I would like to diversify her diet. If she’s not going to eat it, I would rather not have it in my refugium (I’m afraid of it going sexual)

Thanks in advance,
Jim

Thanks! May I ask how you feed it to them? Do you have it in your tank or in a refugium and then put it in the tank with a clip?

Thanks again,
Jim.

I keep a glob in my sump, once in a while I rip up a piece and drop it in the tank.
