Lawnmower Blenny not eating

Hello,

I just got a Lawnmower Blenny about 3 days ago and the LFS guy told me that they eat sheet algae but mine refuses to eat it I also tried brine and mysis shrimp. Water Parameters are perfect. So my main question is what can I feed him?

Thanks!

They will graze on algae on just about any surface of your tank

I do not see any kiss marks on the algae on the glass. he does not touch sheet algae i put in for him. He also just sits on the top rock and perches and moves very little. He also is not eating shrimp.
