Soaking the foods in a good vitamin like Zoe will help if you do not have any prefab foods. A few drops on the nori a few minutes before placing it in the tank should be okay. Nori alone is not always the best choice. Personally I would add some prefab marine foods like Ocean nutrition, OSI or HBH used sparingly. They do not need to be the main diet but will contain the "extras" that the nori will be lacking like [acronym="Highly Unsaturated Fatty Acid"]HUFA
[/acronym]'s. Nori is a very high vitamin and amino acid source and should
be used continuously, it just needs a bit of help.
The augmented foods are to help the fish fight it off naturally. The main benefit will be from the water changes as it dilutes both the bacterium and the DOC
that will be causing the problem in the first place. Given this is a QT
and not a properly funtioning ecosystem, it is actually more common than you think for this to become a problem.
