Depends on the fish. Tangs should get it every day/every other day. But only as much as they will consule in a day. If any is stil there the next day remove it and give less the next time.
Unless of course you have a good snail populaton. Then you are assured there will be nothing left <g>.

So no corals for your tank <g>.

Nori every day is fine. Just remove whatever is not consumed.
I hope you are target feeding the cc star.

BTW, I lost my Foxface this year. I had it for over 5 years. Beautiful fish.

No jumping, found it on its side one day, struggling, getting stuck against a powerhead intake, basicaly unable to maintain an upright condition.
All water parameters were in check. No physical damage to the fish and no signs of disease. No other fish were affected. I removed it from the tank at that point.

You target feed a cc star by putting some food right next to it till it grabs it. There are plastic feeding prongs you can get to help. Otherwise the fish will eat it all before the star gets it.

It needs some meaty food too, a variety of chunks of marine fish, shellfish, and crustaceans fortified with Selcon and vitamins.
Also it will eat all sessile invertebrates and any mobile ones it can capture.
