When I had tangs I tied romaine to a rock and they would eat it all up. There was no mess.

Mine love it, it's a lot cheaper than seaweed too. I bought a garlic guard and soaked it to get them to eat it at first and now they go after it. I try to switch between romaine, spinach, and green seaweed. Oh by the way I have two tangs and a law mower blenny who love it. No mess. They will take care of it, just start small and make to throw away the remains not let it float in the tank.

I feed my tang spinach and romaine lettuce sometimes when I cook. It's a great treat for her. She loves it. I put it in the seaweed clip where I feed her daily seaweed.

I will give that a try. However, I think my tangs eat anything.

While it may be OK, they are something tangs never would see or eat naturally. You can get dried seaweed (nori) extremely cheap from Asain markets or even on Ebay.

Most lettuces, including romaine, offer very little nutritional value to tangs and other marine fish. As mentioned, nori is typically a better choice.
