Lawnmower blenny

My Lawnmower blenny isn't touchint the hair algae in my tank..instead it seems to be picking at bare spots(on the corraline) on the rock...I thought they eat hair algae..should I put some nori in for him..?

Mine never ate the hair algae either. It also never bothered with the nori. They love the green film algae that coats the rocks and glass.

Exactly the same with mine too. He never goes for the hair algae. He likes to pick at snails, equipment, live rock without hair, and the glass. I tried nori and the snails were the only ones to enjoy it.

Now we need to figure out what caused the hair algea in the first place. High organics in your water most likely. Cut back on your feedings to every other day. When you do a water change, rubber band a old tooth brush to the end of your hose and gently brush hair algea off rock and siphon it out of the tank. Been feeding my tank every other day for 8 years with no sgns of algea. Have a good day
