Mine swims for awhile then perches. He eats algae in between. Sounds pretty normal to me.

He just swims against the glass like he's trying to get out although there's plenty if rock work for him and all

It will not need nori/algae every day. Every few days is fine. Are there any other herbivores that need to be fed nori often?

Sounds good. You shouldn't have to feed nori every day then. Twice or three times a week shoudl be fine, in small amounts.
