Feeding Nori to plecos and other herbivores?

Anyone try to feed Nori to their plecos or cichlids?

Just looking to spice of the feeding life of my fish, and zucchini always goes flaccid in the fridge before I use it up. Nori, on the other hand, lasts for eons.

Check the sodium level. I shop at a several asian markets. I have to watch my sodium levels so I read every label. I've noticed it tends two be all over the place on amts. I was buying Sobe noodles and saw Sodium ranged from 60mg to 1800mg.

Anyone ever have plecos or other algae-consuming fish munch on Nori?

I think a good soaking before putting it in the tank would drastically reduce a high sodium level. But agreed if you use a lot that could spell trouble for plants. Fortunately I think it would take a lot of Nori to actually contribute a harmful amount of sodium to the tank.

OR, you could just read the label and by the brand with low sodium.

Not always an option in my area, not all stores carry it
