I also thought of this, if he is well fed by you, he may become lazy and not eat the hair algae...This happened with my fire and cleaner shrimps. I never saw them clean once.

I don't know. I thought to myself that by not feeeding him, he'd be forced to scavenge for food. It seemed to be working well, until I saw him a little skinny the other day. He loves to pick the spot algae off the glass...but I don't think he is getting anything from it. Meanwhile, the hair algae goes untouched! I will definitley be trying the garlic (that garlic extreme is expensive, woah!). Worth the price though, I love this fish.

Thanks guys. I have some Zoe on order and the Garlic Extreme.

My lawnmower blenny eats off the rocks all day long.

He also eats the "slow sinking pellets" I feed the tank - "Nutrafin Max Marine Complete Food for all marine fish".

There are fast-sinking pellets too, with spyrolina in them, he likes those.

He didn't start taking prepared food for a few months, until I got a green mandarin, so I wonder if the blenny was eating pods, and the mandarin cut the numbers down to the point where the blenny had to look elsewhere for food.

Either way, mines a little porker, and looks pregnant, cause his belly is so fat.

Scoot, I never thought about it eating the pods. Mine is eating off the rocks all the time too! But he is so small... I hope this garlic will maybe help it munch the hair algae.

Thanks again guys, I'll keep ya updated!
