Do I have to buy those nori specially made for aquarium use or I can just get them at the supermarket which is for human consumption will it mess the water chemistry up?

Nori from the supermarket is fine, I use it with no issues. I compared the 2 side by side and I want to say that they are the exact same thing. Same size, color, lines ect. JMO.

Yeah dont buy the stuff from the LFS...its absolutely no different than the Nori you buy to wrap sushi in for humans. I would make sure there are no additives in the stuff you buy from the store. I buy mine at Central Market in the 'exotic' foods section. Its about $2.99 for 8-10 sheets - 8x10 size

Ive had my Yellow Tang for about a month and a half and it still swims behind the rockwork whenever I walk up to the tank. But like stated before It will always swim out when I feed them. I dont know if this is normal but my Hippo and my Yellow are always together. Also my manager at PetSuppliesPlus has used lettuce and brocoli

I would be very careful about adding lettuce and brocoli - thats just me. Those items can have pesticides on them no matter how much you wash them...again just my opinion as Im very paranoid on putting things in my tank

lettuce no food value for fish.. just a filler and not a good idea as the main food source.

wow i must be lucky, because my tangs follow me when im at the tank. They are always do this b/c they want food. I rip my algae sheets into small pieces and let them float on the tank for the tangs to eat.

A word of caution however for terrestrial plants as feed. However, a lot of hobbyists didn't have any complaints. Just a word of caution.
