Is my blenny sick??

Hello I've had this algae blenny for the past month or two and he's been rather healthy but recently I can see he's been looking a little skinny and all day he's been darting around the tank non stop when hes usually very shy. Any ideas?

He is starving. Did you get him to get rid of an algae problem? Try feeding a variety of foods till you see something he eats.

I did actually but once I noticed he was skinny I purchased mini algae wafers and he occasionally eats them. He eats flaked food sometimes too

Get some frozen mysis shrimp or emerald entree or some other type of frozen food and feed him that. Also, provide an algae sheet for him.
