I have a yellow tang that eats meaty substances as well as nori and other seaweed / algaes. Most of her diet is made up of nori and other seaweeds I clip onto the side of the tank which she goes crazy for.

Is it normal for Tangs to eat both meaty foods and algae based foods? is it detrimental to their health if they eat both?

My sailfin will eat anything that goes into the tank. Probably why he/she is so fat. I do make sure there are plenty of greens anyways.

I think it's common for them to accept meaty stuff occasionally. My Naso doesn't much care for meaty foods. She's all about the algae and sh*t tons of it. (I'm from TN you have to let me talk a little bit redneck.)

Well I'll be joining you out there pretty soon. My husband and I are moving there in June, but I won't be talking redneck for real because I don't have an accent despite living here my whole life.
