Another thing that people don't realize, myself included. I thought my Dragonet was starving because I was looking at him the wrong way. His belly wasn't getting bigger and I thought that was how to judge his intake. Come to find out its not his belly I should b looking at. It's the hump on his back, just forward of his dorsal fin. I don't know anything about the Lawnmower Blenny but looks might b deceiving

1 more thing before I give it a break. Adding copepods is a waste of money. It might increase their number initially but the number will settle to the sustainable number that your tank is able to maintain. I purchased pods, including the expensive Tiger Pods. I even bred Tiger Pods (very easy) but in the end there aren't any Tiger Pods to b seen in my tank. They're easier to c than the normal size copepod. The pod thing is mostly hype. Any healthy tank with plenty of LR has pods. The tank would have to b awfully sterile if it didn't have pods. OK, enough said. I won't bore u any further

Good point, my advice was under the assumption we were talking about live pods.
