Seaweed Food (Should I even bother?)

I have a question. I bought seaweed for my fish.

1. Six Line Wrasse
1. Flame Hawkfish
1. Coral Beauty
1. Blue Spotted Puffer

I clipped it to the side of the tank they frequent the most, but they don't eat it. Not even a nibble. I left it in for a day and it got all over my tank. So much clean up there is still seaweed in some area's. I didn't even put a big strip in.

Should I even bother with it? If so how long should I leave it in so that won't happen again? They just don't seem to care about it.

My coral beauty didn't touch mine for ~2 weeks, now it is his favorite. It just took him a while to realize it.

I soaked my seaweed/algae sheets in a little garlic guard to get my starry blenny to try them.

Now he goes crazy for them as soon as I place them in the tank.

I usually take any remaining algae sheet out after a couple of hours. Sometimes they eat it right away, other times not. Guess it just depends how hungry they are.
