What is the basic guideline for these seaweed sheets? I bought a clip that suctions on to the glass of the tank, do I just clip it there? Should I space it out a little bit after they eat their breakfast? How long can I leave the sheet in the tank?
We, as a family, eat nori when we do veggie sushi. Nori is the thin dark green seaweed that is the outer wrap to sushi and sashimi. When bought at our local Japanese/Korean store, 50 sheets of 7.5"x8.5" costs $7CAD. That is a lot of nori. One sushi roll uses one sheet of nori. The package says 100% seaweed with nothing added. I am no expert in algae, but Mr. Google says that nori, or seaweed, is some form of algae. I do not see the similarity with the stuff I scrape off the sides of my tank. Does anyone feed their goldfish nori? The irony is that people serve nori to wrap raw fish to eat, while I am contemplating feeding the nori straight to my fish. I believe seaweed comes from the sea, as in marine water, and our goldfish are freshwater. Would there be microscopic particles of salt left in the nori that might harm goldfish. I don't taste not even a hint of salt when I eat nori. The advantages of nori are: -it is in my kitchen -it is cheap -it is algae/seaweed with nothing added -if the fish don't eat it I will
My poor oranda, Bilbo (my daughter named her) by the end of the day, almost everyday is stuck at the top of the tank unable to stay down for very long. Reminds me of bobbing for apples, she goes down and the second she stops moving those fins she bobbs right back up to the top. She looks miserable if I could put an emotion on it when she is like that. I finally tried seaweed today. I couldn't find it at petsmart so I ordered it online. I put a 3 inch strip in their tank this afternoon with a clip which they seemed not to notice for a couple of hours and then all of a sudden it was gone. I substituted that for her dinner tonight and this evening as I go to bed she is happily swimming at the bottom of the tank all leisurely and everything. I have tried to find something simple, this fits the bill plus they seem to like to nibble on it. I am hoping this is my "cure"
