View Full Version : What kind of dried seaweed is best for a tang?

Just did a little shopping at the local Chinese market and bought some dried seaweed for my tang. I remember seeing a lot of people on here feeding their tang dried nori, but the only dried nori I saw was roasted nori. Is dried nori and roasted nori the same thing? Wouldn't it lose some nutritional value by being roasted?

As a safety precaution, I also bought some dashi kombu, and figure I'll try that first.

What kind of seaweed does your tang get?

You're right, you want dried nori, not roasted.
I'm not sure about the Kombu, but it seems like I've read that's it's the Korean equivalent of Nori...but I might have dreamed that :rolleyes:
Once in awhile I feed my tang Nori soaked in a drop or two of Zoe multivitamin, the rest of the time it gets what I feed everything else.

Thanks Mariiner, that's what I thought. It figures that their nori only came in roasted form. I'm pretty close to Little Chinatown, though, so maybe I'll check at another store and see what they have.
