Feeding my puffer and tang

I thought it best to post this seperately to get better answers. I recently purchased a blue spot puffer and a powder brown tang, I know the tang needs decent amounts of algae, and the puffer needs meaty foods, but I cant seem to get anything past my two triggers any suggestions for feeding them?

nori on a clip would be good for the tang. i doubt the triggers will bother with that. are they going for anything? maybe they are still just a bit freaked from the transition...

The tang does get a few bites of the algae pieces I put in and some hair algae growong on the lr... Puffer munches on the hair algae as well (caught him making a snack out of our cc starfish) but the problrm is the triggers...my picasso will literally drag the algae around with the clip still attached. The tangs not comfortable enoigh to snatcnh a piece
