You can buy dried algae sheets from your LFS, then you just need a feeding clip that suctions to your glass, to hold the algae sheet. That is what I do.

You can also buy Nori, which I believe is found around an oriental or sushi area of a grocery story. Only one of my local stores sells it though.

I use seaweed selects that most LFS have to feed my herbivores. There are some macro algeas that you can get and put in your tanks for herbivores also.
