Exclamation How do I make my fish eat seaweed/nori?

I have tried putting on a LR but that didn't work. So I heard about the garlic method but I do not know what garlic to use? Can I use garlic powder and mix it in water? Plz answer

I wouldn't use garlic powder; I'm sure it's not just "garlic " dehydrated. I use a garlic substance called garlic xtreme, by kent marine. $10 approx and u only use 1-2 drops. I also use a veggie clip for seaweed. If u want to disperse the garlic put a drop or two in a 1/4c of water and soak seaweed in it for a minute. What fish do u want to eat the seaweed?

I put my seaweed in a clip that's suctioned to the glass. My tang eats it off there and the clowns eat a little too. But my tang eats anything and everything.

My fish just eat it out of the clip, it took about a week for them to find it though. Now they all love it, my cleaner shrimp is always first to a new sheet and spreads pieces into the water that my fish catch. I almost gave up with mine until I saw my coral beauty picking at it one day. Mine says it contains garlic so thy might have helped entice them.

I would buy your nori at the supermarket, not the LFS. If you can find an Asian supermarket, that's even better. They sell the sushi nori very cheap, and you know it's fresh, because it's food grade.

Good call, I will do that from now on. I just picked this up when I bought my coral beauty to keep him well fed and away from my coral. So far so good.

I bought a veggie clip on eBay that has a magnetic which I can lower it down to the bottom of the tank. This one works much better than the suction cup one IMO
