    Wow! It’s late! What time is it for you right now? Does your wife know your posting videos at 4 in the morning? 😛

  • Kevin says:

    Nice tip. For those who can’t do it like this. I got an omega one clip. It floats, which is really nice.

  • Terry says:

    Cool tip. I have been just using a removable zip tie to do this same thing and tieing it to the eggcrate I have over the back half (keeps my eel in).

    Hey all.
    I use my algae magnet.
    Just put the sheet of Nori under the inside magnet and there you have it.
    That’s it.
    Have fun.
    Enjoy your weekend.
    Enjoy your tank
    and know your tank personality.

    Thanx for the tip,
    Have a good vacation Mark!

    Hey its no problem being up at 4 to make sure all of your fans are fed with knowledge, early bird catches the worm I say , well in this case the fish eats the nori . But great idea I have mine mounted to my glass cleaning magnet but the more I can keep my hands from diving into my tank the better . Thank you for all the great vids and thank you for helping me have a beautiful tank and even happier fish . Again thank you Mark and have fun on vacation .

    Great tip Mark..

  • pbnj says:

    Good tip, but I can’t really apply this, as the fish in my tank devour an entire sheet of Nori in less than a minute.

  • Wes says:

    Great tip Mark as always. Thanks.

  • brian says:

    Pbnj then you would go for the 60lb test or some thin S/S fishing leader

  • Matt says:

    Nifty 🙂 Cheers chap 😉

    I’ve done this before it took my tang a long time to not be afraid of the clip flowing in the water movement (He’s a bit of a sissy). I’ve also seen my local reef shop own use a fishing bobber instead of a tack method. kinda look like lobster buoy in a reef tank.

  • Lobster buoy in a fish tank….hahaha…complete with radar reflector too?
