Lawnmower fish Starving

What should I do? He's been starving for about 2-3 day now and his stomach is pinched in so much. All he does is lay on the sand under a rock tilted a bit.

Try giving him nori if he's starving. Just clip it in a clip or rubber band it to a rock.

My blenny doesn't eat flakes or nori. I just leave the back wall alone and he eats off that and the rock and he is pretty fat

Sorry about your fish... At least now you could try another bottom dwelling fish that you couldn't or didn't know about before
