Lightbulb Blenny CUC

Ok it sounds crazy but heres my idea that formed after I got a Scooter Blenny. A Blenny CUC! Watching my Scooter move around I think it's a good idea cause:
  • The Scooter Blenny stirs the sand.
  • A Lawnmower Blenny would eat the algae.
What else does a CUC do? I'm still gonna get a Skunk Cleaner Shrimp regardless but lemme know what you all think of it.

Snails are still gonna eat more algae film I believe. The hermits, stars, and shrimp will get the leftover food particles hiding in the rocks that the fish and "blenny CUC" won't get to.

I also believe that the blenny might stir up some sand but no where near enough to do any good. Maybe a good sand sifting goby.

IME, something seems to go wrong with most any fish added to "do a job" in the tank. They usually don't behave exactly as expected. Keep the blennies if you want because they are cool. I wouldn't expect them to do much of anything except add to the bioload though. Snails and shrimp (hermits if you like them and are ready to deal with their issues) are the CUC of choice for most for very legit reasons.
