Seaweed for tangs

I was wondering if it is safe to feed your tangs the Nori. Seaweed from the grocery store?

Have you ever used it? The seaweed I buy at the lfs has garlic in it.

No, I live in the middle of nowhere. Our grocery stores don't have stuff like that...only place for seaweed is at my LFS in the next county.

I use Romaine Lettuce for my Tangs.
But yes, Nori is great for Tangs.

I've heard Romaine isn't very nutritious and should be rotated in and out with actual seaweed.

I fed my tangs the Nori tonight. I checked the label and it is roasted seaweed. They loved it and it's less expensive than the lfs.
