nori question

Do people leave nori hanging in the tank all the time? I've been putting a piece soaked in garlic (whole tank goes wild!) or in selcon (they don't really care!) every day, but in a couple of hours it's gone. Should I put more in when they finish it?

Same here as far as one a day or every other day about 2"X3" on a clip. My tang is the only fish that touches it though.

I usually put a small piece in twice a day every other day (opposite feeding). Excessive use of nori can foul your water.

the nori will foul your water only if the fish do not eat it relatively quickly. I feed nori once a day, they usually have it gone in a short amount of time. A full sheet lasts about 20 minutes for 3 tangs.

Like stated above I only put a 3-4 inch piece in daily. My 2 Tangs eat it, and my Cleaner wrasse did but he is MIA

LOL, probably 10+ so far

I wish my other fish would help, he can be messy pulling it off at times and none of my inverts touch it either

For the record I have 4 tangs and a rabbit fish. (regal, convict, purple, sailfin) I would put larger pieces of nori in the clip but they are violent when they tear pieces off. A big piece would just get ripped loose from the clip and end up stuck to my closed loop intake.
