IMO feed the Tang Nori with Garlic on it. I've had good luck with Kent's Garlic Extreme. As for your Triggers and the Tang will need a larger tank in the future as they get large and need a lot of room. I use this site as a guideline.

Not one shred of evidence supports the notion that life is serious.

I have a powdered blue & sailfin tang.. They are grazers & need to have seaweed all the time. Just get some seaweed w/garlic put it on a veggie clip & let her constantly have it. Petco sells the seaweed & it comes with a veggie clip.

I have a yellow tang, blue hippo tang, & a coral beauty angel that all love to graze, so I have 2 suction clips I put either seaweed, algae, or also a dark piece of romaine lettuce daily.
