Leave the bag open it will absorb some moisture from the air And will be easier to handle. Once in the clip you can soak it for a few minutes before putting in the tank.Hi everyone, I am coming in late on this thread, Sorry. After reading some of the threads on Nori here, i got to thinking about the remark "for human consumption" and realized that what I was giving my fish was probably not the most nutritious. I purchased Certified Organic Dried Nori...not roasted. Fish love it. MY problem is that it is very difficult to roll or fold. It breaks into small pieces. Next thing I know, fish attack and the majority is all over the tank instead of in the clip. Anyone else have this problem? A suggestion, .....solution?
