    hi Guys,

    Just bought a pack of Ocean Nutrition Nori/Agae Paper. Put in a 30mm piece on the Feeding clamp and sucktioned onto the inside glass of the aquarium.

    I have a yellow tang, 2 clowns, and few other fish.

    Put this in last night, but since, none of the fish have gone for it. Was advised that it is good for the tang, but the tang doesnt seem to interested.

    I guess this is probably since its new and none of the fish have had this before, or they are scared off by the foreign clamp in the tank?

    any ideas on how to get them to realise this is food?

    Leave the clamp in the tank. Put it all the way down so your hermits can also reach it. At first the fish wil be afraid of the Nore.

    I got myself one of those "Two Little Fishes" nori clamp, with magnet holder. Then you do not need to reach in with your arm all the way to the bottom, and fish do not get a freight for your arm entering.

    Another short term option is to tie the nori to a small piece of live rock with rubber bands, and drop that on the bottom.
