Since he hasn't been in the tank very long I wouldn't stress yet. Give him a few days to adjust. You may also try soaking the seaweed in garlic.

Sounds like normal behavior for a new Kole tang.

Not the same fish but similar behaviour, my Blonde Naso was the same but now one of the first to hover for the seaweed........ it will happen.

Eating off the rock is not a bad thing. Some Tangs are good algae cleaners. My Tang always loved grape caulerpa. You might try it.
