What nori do you use?

I was wondering what kinds of nori people use. I was thinking about just buying the omega one brand since I do like their foods but I also hear you can buy some at an asian food market and it's the same thing. So what do you use?

I get it from the little asian food store on the corner by my house. Just make sure it's not flavored. Seaweed or roasted seaweed should be the only ingredient on the label.

I get mine from the grocery store also . "Roasted" is just dried by heat.

Any Nouri from the Asian food store will work. As stated, just get the roasted stuff. The ingredients listed on the back should say "Seaweed". Seaweed is seaweed. It's all the same.

I buy nori from the local asian market. Human grade is best for your tank

Sometimes they just don't put the word "roasted" on the label.

I use Julian Sprung, but I have also used the grocery store stuff in the past. I use TLF algae magnet, and I highly recommend it. It allows me to feed the algae without getting my hands wet.

for my main use, I do have a couple bags of nori from the grocery store. But at times I like to use the red and purple seaweed under the julian sprung brand. I've found that, when first getting fish in my quarantine, the variety will entice them to eat if they're struggling to acclimate. It's much more expensive to use that as a norm, though, so I only break it out for specific purposes.

We are using roasted seaweed from Winco; I think it was maybe 3 dollars for about 10 sheets.

When buying it at the store, take a look at the Iron %, some are very high. I've seen blooms when using the high percentage stuff, 2-10% is what I shoot for.

very cool! I will have to look at the iron on the bag that I just bought. It just said roasted seaweed on the bag and it was $5 for 50 sheets WAY cheaper than ones made for aquarium use thanks guys!

Always at the Asian Store for years. I just bought a 2 ounce bag of strips
2"x.5" for $1.97. Its great for a snack,too. My Purple loves it. I just tear it up a little more, mix it with frozen food, and water. Pour right in, forget the clips.
