feeding tangs

I have two new tangs (yellow and kole)..... I have had them a couple weeks. They are finally picking at the green seaweed that I put in the tank. They are constantly picking at the sand and the LR (espcially the kole).

My question is I have Ocean Nutrition Formula two. How do I feed it to them? I watched a video online and it said to just drop the whole tablet in there and it will float around... however, when I drop a tab in there -- it just SINKS!!.. Then I tried holding the tab underwater and just breaking off small pieces.... when I do this the tangs don't really "go after the pieces"....

What is the best way to use formula 2?
Do I give them the whole tablet?
should I alternate 1 whole tablet one day and 1/4 sheet seaweed the next?

I`ve never fed pellots. I would feed them spirulina flakes or some other flake that has vegetable matter. Also some dried seaweed. Keep those greens coming.
