Blenny Question

I would like to get a Lawnmower Blenny. If they eat natural algae, how do I quarantine them? Do you supplement their food or do you not QT them at all?

Yes, of course you QT them. You can supplement the algae with spirulina or seaweed (like this )
make sure your QT has a tight lid, as well as your aquarium as they will jump

Make sure before you get him you make sure you see him eat at the LFS and I mean something other than algea. Alot of times people get them for algea and when the algea is gone they starve to death. Seen it many times. If you see it eat mysis or flake or brine at the LFS then he should be good to go. They are very finicky eaters once the hair algea goes.

That's exactly what I needed to know. Thank you very much. I was very concerned since QT's do not have anything but PVC and water. I will definitely make sure it eats something other than algae.
