for the tang you can get dried algae sheets or also known as NORI.

Well for the fish you describe they all have some unique dietariy needs. For example the tang will be most happy with a more vegitarian diet with occasional meaty supplments. The puffer is more likly the opposite (I have not kept that puffer so I cant say for sure but I do belive puffers as a whole like more meaty foods).

curious jester why you think is sucks that ya cant feed them all one thing !! kinda lost for words on that comment !! as for the tang and the nori that can be a pain but if your good about putting it in the tank for him at all times you will find that you will have one healthy tang out of the deal !! now mine for some reason loves to eat from the bottom of the clip out which then leaves big pieces to come lose but other than that no biggy

the tang will want too be always feeding on some thing, the puffer might be fine with 1 or 2 feedings but if its hungary it will just try eating your other fish, i know what you mean about the g/f not feeding them right thats why i put a certain amout of food into a bag in the freezer so she cant mess it up, mabey try that.

I feed all my fish blender mush, including my tangs. I also put a small algae sheet in every other day. (I alternate between Sea Veggies and Nori) When ever I cook seafood, which is about twice a week, I chop upa few pieces of shrimp/scallops/fish/etc a toss it in.
