For what fish? You can always have some on an algae clip, when some runs out, replace it.

I dont think it should be constantly hanging there. The tang will pick the live rock too. I would say feed on the clip 2-3 times per week. My tang and blenny eat it in less than 10minutes.

I have 3 tangs and a lawnmower blenny so I tend to have a piece in every day. But I also don't have alot of algae in the tank on the rocks so I figure better they have too much than not enough.

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.

Depending on where you live you can always get an invasive algae to keep for the tang something like Caulerpa

You don't want skinny fish or wild nitrates in your water.

since you feed only flakes i would keep nori available. i would try a varied diet. perhaps some other rinsed frozen food once or twice a week as well, or maybe something from the seafood section at the supermarket.
