blenny not eating

I've had a lawnmower blenny now for 6 months. He has stopped eating. He is very skinny but still breaths and swims ok. I've tried to give some Seaweed Selects, Spirulina, and Algae tabs but he wont eat. there is algae on the glass and rocks but he wont eat it anymore.

All other fish OK Water paramiters OK

Any ideas??????????

Mine did the same thing. I have had 2 blennies just like this and still to this day do not know what was wrong. Mind died. I even tried putting him in a QT tank and still nothing. He just refused to eat. Hope yours does better...maybe try the garlic thing with him....

I was thinking of the garlic but was unsure if it would work on herbavors. Does anyone know of a macro algae that they like?

I tried the Frozen Lifeline and he would nibble at this....I would think about trying something other than this...

What was the outcome of your blenny? How is he doing?
