vegetarian / vegan fish tank?

I'm vegetarian and this might sound weird but I'm in the process of setting up my first 55g fowlr tank and i was wondering if my fish could be vegetarian too , so far I've identified yellow tang which solely depends on sea veggies and another beautiful one i found was foxface rabbitfish

do you guys know of any more. my Google skills are good but just two out of 100's of saltwater aquarium fish is not promising

also, can i just buy the frozen seaweed from Asian groceries? do they process it with other chemicals.

Look for the smaller tangs too. Bimini or kole. Most tangs prefer 6ft tanks. 125g and up.

They do breed clowns a lot. Not sure about the others. Not sure if I've ever heard of farm bred or farm raised tangs before. Heck, I'm sure that guy named Google might be able to tell you.

You talk about the yellow tang, I feed mine Brocchli and dried seaweed. They are herbivores.
