The tang will want to graze everyday, the angel may eat it or some of it, but angels prefer meatier foods as a staple, like spnge and zooplankton.

I alternate between Sea Veggies and Nori. They seem to like the Sea Veggies better, but it breaks apart easier and makes a mess in the tank. Even my bursa trigger likes the Sea Veggies. For the trigger and other fish I feed "blender mush" daily and I drop some pieces of raw seafood whenever I cook it (a couple times a week).

The Sea Veggies goes over very well with my tang and some of my other occupants. I use the green and the red label. There may be more added nutrition (I'd have to check the packaging to be sure) than the nori alone.
