They look great. I love how the blenny blends right in with the rock, is that shot from the top down? We got a flame a couple of weeks back (The bosses favorite) and boy they are gorgeous fish.

Shot of the Blennie is from straight on, and yes he blends in quite well!

I love lawnmower blennies. They blend in so well and are a SW oddball. One of my favorite kinds. Great fish.

Nice little guys you got there. The blenny looks like he was just caught doing something.

This might be stupid question but why is it called a lawn mower blenny?

When you have a lot of algae, it will mow it down, and does a really good job in my tank. I see his mouth marks all over the glass :p

GOod question!

They look very nice. Is your blenny eating any prepared foods? If not start working on that now.

WOW that angel is beautiful man! I have a Lemon peel myself, I was thinking of getting a Flame but once I saw the Lemon I picked him out of the two.

Congrats on getting both

Thats a good point...my blenny has taken up blood worms as an additional food source... it refuses to eat mysis shrimps though. Keep an eye on its stomach, If its not always full, then it is probably not getting enough algae.

I have some algae waffers that I feed to my pleco, and the blenny has no problems scraping it off the pellets.

Nice looking blenny. Now that I know it eats algae like a lawnmower I have to get one.

I have not been able to get him to eat prepared foods, but I keep trying my best. He seems to be getting enough algae though, I see him scraping the glass most of the time.
