We use sally's seaweed salad 10 sheets for 3 dollars. Our tangs are very agressive eaters and we have found if you can cut the seaweed into squares you can fold it in half corner to corner so that its a triangle, then repeat so that in the end you have a smaller 90 degree triangle. Then just put the thickest corner in the clip your tangs wont rip it so you have huge pieces floating around your tank.
They also sell a mesh looking clip for slowing the tangs eating annd the mess down to a minimum.

Last night I took a 2" piece of Nori, rolled it into a small tube and stuck it in the clip. This was test because my Sailfin tang and Foxface Lo tend to break the nori apart and then I have pieces floating and getting stuck on the corner overflows.

The rolled up tube worked much better till a brittle star decided to crawl up the glass and wrap himself around the tube of nori. The tang still managed to get between the star's arms on occasion and nip a small piece. It was fascinating to watch. I took some pictures and will upload them this weekend when I have some time.
