Can I get a Lawnmower Blenny ???

I'm tired of watching snails and the occasional hermit die.... I was thinking maybe I would get a LM blenny to fill the gap.... I've already got a psycho goby and a good sized pink spotted.... I was wondering if the blenny would have any problems with these two?????

I just Picked a LM Blenny up myself. Very cool fish. I have a ton of algea on the back wall of my tank. He already went to work on it.

I have a shrimp Goby and they seem fine together.

If you do get one make sure that he is eating. The one I picked up was in the LFS for almost 2 months and was a fat pig. I was told at the LFS some LM go on hunger strikes and starve to death.

I think you would be OK. Want to second El Diablo's remark about seeing them eat at the LFS. I lost my first one in QT due to it not eating. The one I have now is a fat cow, he eats everything and does a great job on the algae.
