I got a Yellow phase Atlantic Blue Tang about a week ago and is about 1.5-2 inches. It will not eat nori but is going to town on any other food I feed (flake, pellet, frozen). How do I get it to eat seaweed?

Tie it to a rock and he will just naturally start to graze. Also cut back on regular feelings to get him to pick

From my experience those fish prefer red / purple Rod's Algae sheets stuck inside a grid clipped to the side of the glass. (never touched the green)

I have however had tangs not touch it depending on other tank mates and activity in the tank

I did finaly see him eat some nori from the clip to the glass. I will need to look for one of those grid clips.
Sounds like it would keep tang from ripping off the clip.

I use a normal clip and super glued a mag clip to it.

I also use Rods Algae sheets.
