    I didn't know Chromis ate Nori? Anyone else experiancing it? When I put some Nori into the tank the tangs go NUTS but then comes along some lonely chromis and actually pull the nori off the nori sheet. So they not just feeding off the floating parts they activly pulling it off the sheet.

    Are they nori munchers

    Mines don't go anywhere near the nori if I clip it in the tank. If i chop it up they just spit it out, lol, they dont like eating their veggies.
