Very skinny Lawnmower, need help

My Lawnmower Blenny was fat when I got him but now he is looking much thinner. He eats algae from the tank and I have been making sure to keep algae sheets and algae tabs out. It's a peaceful tank and no one bothers him but I'm afraid he's not getting enough to eat. Any ideas? I don't want him to die.

Lawnmower Blennies love to eat pods. If there are no pods available for him, this could be why he's getting skinny.( same as a mandarin )
You can purchase pods from various aquarium sites to seed your tank with. This would probably help a lot.
