    This is a great way to feed Nori. I've designed a prototype magnetic floating Nori feeder without using the MagFloat. Not quite happy with it need to tweak a bit. The benefit is very little chance of big pieces being torn off and floating around the tank. I've feeding them like this for a few years and it is way better than any Nori clip i have ever used.

    Super late reply, sorry: Interesting approach. However wouldn't the last parts of nori be pulled out?

    Yes but the time they get it down that far there is really not much left. I just got tired having big pieces floating around getting caught in the circulating pumps and on corals. Its not perfect but works better than any clip I've used. Veggie grazer looks good but way to expensive. In Canada with shipping its about $40 or more.
