Why not lettuce? I have feed my tangs for years with a combination of nori and romaine lettuce. They are super fat and happy.

I believe you may be thinking of iceberg lettuce, which has very little nutritional value..... Romaine lettuce is packed with nutrients.

Here's some "research" for you:

I feed romaine lettuce and spinach to my tangs and they love it better than nori.
