Blenny Feeding

Hi All...

One of my recent arrivals is a Tail Spot blenny. WHen I first started feeding him and his clown companion, I was using Mysis shrimp, however, I quickly noticed the blenny wasn't entirely enthusiastic. I did some quick research and realized blennies are herbivores...(oops). I immediately added a veggie clip and have been feeding that sheet like algae (both fish are still in quarrantine) but while he picks at it he doesn't seem to really "like" the stuff. He must be eating some of it as he has been here a week and is active and hardy and if he hadn't eaten in a week I am sure he would be showing signs.

Anyone feeding supplemental algae? If so, what brands/types?

There is a herbivore food that is made my rod's food. I feed that to my tanks about 2 times a week. There is also formula two food by ocean nutrition.
ROD'S FOOD -Providing your salt water aquarium with the finest food. Ocean Nutrition Formula Two Flakes Marine Fish Food
I do prefer rod's food over other frozen food it doesn't cause as many nitrates as others.
