no tank is complete without an algae/lawnmower blenny. check them out too...compatible with everything, and very entertaining to watch.
i do like the clowns as well.
i've never owned a CC star because they are not reef safe.

The lawnmower blenny requires an established tank with lots of algae. Other blennies like the bicolor generally get along with fine with nori as a supplement to algae growing on the rock.

Just remember to go slow with the fish additions. Wait a few weeks between purchases to allow the bacterial population time to expand for each new bio load added to the tank.

where did you hear that? i do not agree. lawnmower blennies are omnivores. i've put plenty of them in brand new tanks and they've eaten whatever i've put in the tank for them, including nori sheets. this was true for all of the lawnmower blennies i've owned.

yes I've also had good luck with the one lawnmower blenny i had awhile back...but i have read many stories online that stated how hard it is to get them to eat and that they often die

I have question about a qt tank. I have a 25 gallon that I can use. Do I have to change the water after each fish I quarantine? Also do I need substrate in the tank?
