The Salty Side: Saltwater Aquariums for Beginners

Top 3 Best Seaweed Clips

The easiest way to feed your tank inhabitants dried seaweed, is to use a nori holder like the ones below.  I personally use the Gourmet Grazer but all of the clips below have great overall reviews so the choice is yours as to which of these will be your best seaweed clips.

By feeding your herbivorous fish, such as tangs, and invertebrates nori, you are ensuring that they are getting a wide range of vitamins in minerals imperative for good health.  Not only that but they also contain amino acids, fatty acids and iodine.

If you have a sea urchin, snails, crabs, herbivorous fish or algae blennies that rely on algae as their main source of nutrition it is so important that they are supplemented with nori once the algae source in the tank has run out.  

Many saltwater aquarium owners will buy livestock to help clear a tank of unwanted algae but once the algae problem has been taken care of, forget that the inverts and fish that fed off the algae in the first place require a new source of food.

2. Best seaweed clip by Innovative Marine

Like the pouch feeder below, the Gourmet Grazer allows fish to pick at the nori rather that it coming away in big chunks like can happen with a seaweed clip.  Held in place by strong magnets, it is suitable for tanks with acrylic or glass up to an inch thick.  The feeder snaps closed so ensure it is not overfilled to prevent it opening up again in the tank.
