feeding tang

how often do you guys feed seaweed sheets or nori ie greens to your tangs?
the main question i have is i feed my yellow tang seaweed everyday and mysis or some other type of frozen meat every other day but within 1-2 hours hes eatin all the seaweed is that enough for him for the whole day or should i constantly keep one in there? the amount i feed him is 3" x 3" sheet of seaweed salad or nori

I keep a sheet in almost everyday, sometimes it takes 2 days for my tang, blenny and sea hare to eat it all.

Does the tang look hungry? Mine is actually getting fat but I think thats due to my overfeeding habits. I feed everyday though so that might be why mine doesnt get through the sheet i put in.

Did we get pictures Hack? i don't remember....if not you are in trouble!!! LOL

Maybe you do have a piggy fish then! lol As long as his body mass doesnt dwindle or he looks thin I would keep at what youre doing. Maybe add an extra piece of seaweed here and there to keep that monster of yours full.

I put a sheet in everyday for my tomini and lavender tang. Usually by the end of the day it's gone. Sometimes I put in two because the lavender is a pig and tries to eat everything, so I want to make sure the tomini is getting enough too. I think I put in about the same size sheet as you, maybe its 4x4. Then whatever is left on the clip they couldn't eat I let it fall to the bottom and either they'll eat it, or the crab will later once the lights go out
