What does imo stand for and also nori. Sorry I can not understand the words.
I feed my Yellow tang every two days frozen food which also has garlic too.

IMO I would feed that Tang more (2x's a day) plus let it pick at the nori. Here is a good article on Yell Tangs http://www.wetwebmedia.com/YellowTang.htm


Hope this helps,

Kaye

Just to add my 2cents my tang enjoys the cubed frozen herbivorous stuff a lot. I use "Formula 2"

The Tangs have a really fast metabolism this is one of the reasons they want to eat so much.
