do you put the nori on a veggie-clip -or- do you crumble it in the tank and let it swirl around???

Brine shrimp, blood worms, squid, broccoli and dried seaweed. Tangs are pigs.

The nori comes in 12"x12" sheets, I usually put two or three together and cut a strip 1" wide down one side, then fld it in half so it fans out and clip it at the fold. I stick it on the same spot on the glass every time I feed (every 2 to 3 days) and pull any they haven't eaten (PBT and Kole in 180 g display system).

You may find that your PBT is very shy, especially whenever you have company or lots of motion in the room. About the only time I see it is directly after putting the clip in the tank, or in the evenings when I turn the room lights down and sit back and watch.

FORGIVE MY COMPLETE IGNORANCE....

exactly how do you put broccoli in the tank......

diced and let float / swirl around the tank?

or stick a small stem (with a broccoli-head intacted) on a veggie-clip??

my wife buys uncooked/raw broccoli stalks for our dinners.....i guess I can steal some of that...right?

never put broccoli in the tank and need to know how its done

My powderblue gets dried spirulina daily, along with a mix of flake foods (I know I know) I also give some frozen foods on occassion.

I just trim down the stem so it fits in the clip. Make sure you don't leave it in more than 24 hours as it will start to rot and you will smell it. Actually my 4 Tangs, 2 Clowns, and 6-Line Wrasse love the broccoli. Pigs I tell you. I can't walk by the tank without them all crowding the corner and begging!!!

I buy algea pieces at the lfs and put it in the clip. Mine will not eat it right away, but then I will come back an hour or so later and it will all be gone! She loves it! I also feed her whatever the other fish are eating for the day. I only give algae a couple of times per week.

I used to have a hippo tang, the same feeding applies for him as the powder blue, I gave it A veggie clip of ocean nutrition 4x a weeek and she pigged up on the mysid I feed to my Gobies every two days.
