Caulerpa in Main?

I was just curious to see if anyone with a FOWLR put some Caulerpa or Chaetomorpha in their main tank and allow for a bit more natural look? I know most use it in their fuge's but thought i'd ask. I saw some 'seaweed' labeled as Caulerpa & Chaetomorpha that I thought looked like it'd be neat to add to a tank. I think, especially since I can't have corals for some time that this would give the fish something to do/ munch on as well as give the tank a more natural look if aquascaped proplerly. It was only $5 for a huge bunch at the LFS - any thoughts?

If you have a tang in tank the calerpa will not last long. I put a ball as big as a baseball from my fuge and it`s gone in two days.

Id love a tang of some sort, but I hear they're not good for a 55 gal I've got a coral beauty in my QT tank as of right now. 2 common clowns in the main..
