Lettuce is worthless and he can starve on a full stomach of it. Yet if he ate lettuce thats a good sign he will take nori. Anyways a 55 gallon isn't going to come close to cutting it either. Naso tangs do best in 135-180 gallon aquariums, and IMO require a tank this size if you are going to keep him alive once he starts growing.

Sixline is right about the lettuce and the tank. Naso's get huge.. well over a foot in length. The stunted growth from being in a small tank is gonna give you a very unhealthy fish.

Still, you've got a while to make plans.. definitely try to get some Nori for now.

I think the point was missed with the lettuce. It is a step in getting the fish switched to seaweed, and for the record I am not sure I agree with it being worthless. While it is certainly not a nutrient rich as seaweed is.... it still is a far cry from worthless. For that matter I have had a tang for a while now that absolutely loves a piece of broccoli every now and then.

Mit freundlichen Grüßen
