This may be dumb but......

I have a small betta tank with an anarchis plant growing like crazy in there. Now I know people feed lettuce to their tangs. Could I put some of this plant in my reef tank? Just a thought. I have to cut some of it out anyway

It will die. However, a tang might eat some

If your are planning on using it as a food source, be cautious. Not all greens are created equal. The tang may eat the plant but it might not provide all or even any of the nutrients he needs. On the other hand it might be the perfect food source. Keep an eye on him to make sure he doesn't start to loose weight despite eating like a pig.
