Tangs are natural grazers. Kinda like cows just alot nicer to lo0k at.

The 8x11 sheets of nori is not that bad at all. I feed mine about half of a sheet every couple days. The nori cost abot $3 to $4 a pack and comes with 40 sheets. Nothing that is going to breal the bank. It last me a long time..

I think that mine is more like a pig than a cow. He eats everything all day long and when I put in seaweed strips, he rips them off the clip. No grazing, it is his mission to eat that seaweed asap!

I could see a sheet every couple of days, that is why I have tried to mix it up with other foods. He loves formula 2 flake, which I have in the auto feeder. I usually give lettuce, spinach and dried seaweed in the clip. I have only recently done the broccoli. He doesn't really care though. He still keeps the rocks clean and I hope he will stay away from the Xenia. If only I couyld get him to try the bubble Algea
