My friend and I had a discussion about amount and frequency of feeding seaweed. I'm just after your input on how much seaweed & how often you would feed it a tank in which a fox-face and regal tang are the only fish that seem interested in eating the stuff.

At least every other day. I use a half sheet of Nori about 4 days a week. My Tangs, Rabbit fish, Clowns and my Midas Blenny all eat it. I also feed them other seaweeds from my Refugium.

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

I have several tangs and a bunch of other fish that really like the seaweed so I try to put it out every day. I use small pieces though so there isnt any "float" away parts. I will put it out several times if the fish consume it quickly.

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.
