Does anyone here feed nori to their Ancistrus? Is there any reason not to? I found a package of it in my cupboard and figured it wold be good for them.

I take it you mean the dried seaweed.

Sera have a product HERE that is made from Nori but it's mainly for Marine fish.
I've read that Nori is high in protein so for that reason alone I would not feed it to my BN's, there is also the effect it would have on water quality as I don't know if anything is added in the production of it.

For the sake of variety I have tried a lot of things to see if my BN would eat/like it. I tried a Sally's Seaweed Salad which is nori. It is high protien, 43% and my BN did not eat it. My mollies however love the stuff.

Thanks for the info. I didn't know it's high in protein. I had already put a little in the tanks and my kribs and cherry shrimp seemed to like it a lot, but the bristlenoses didn't seem too excited about it.

tilkifox- nori is the seaweed they wrap around sushi rolls. I've read that it's actually a type of algae pressed into sheets and dried. That's why I thought it would be good for algae eating fish.

LOL It is kind of an obscure food to find in your cupboard. I live in a sushi-obsessed culture.
