Lawnmower Blenny committed suicide

I was looking at my tank last night, and I couldn't find my blenny. I look at the intake of my MJ1200, and I see 1/4 of his body inside, head first. I turned it off, and I noticed everything was still intact, but I guess he died from stress. He liked to hang around the MJ1200. I put the foam adaptor thing on the MJ, so that this never happens again. I have a clown small enough to get grinded up by the MJ. Another lesson learned from a mistake.

I had a scooter blenny that went the same route.

too little too late. So sorry for your loss, just be glad you have taken measures to protect your small clown

Is the foam adaptor a manufactrued product or did you diy. I am going to get MJ's and don't want to have that happen.

I'm losing count, but my lawnmower blenny has gone into the first siphon overflow chamber at least 8 times now in the 6 weeks since I've had him.

There's a screen that prevents him from going further into the siphon, but it is a real pain getting him out of there.

It actually comes with it. I just never thought about putting it on.

Thanks guys. I'm thinking about getting another one, or maybe I'll go with a bicolor blenny.
