Default Lawnmower BLENNY

I was having a lot of green algae growing in my tank so I got a Lawnmower
Blenny.
Let me tell you, he is GREAT. Better than a janitorial company: He does
glass (windows), lol

My concern is, he is getting the tank spotless but what will he eat now?

I noticed he doesn't eat when I feed the tank, just interested in green
algae.

Should I start to increase the bio load to speed up the algae growth rate?

Troll and be trolled................ dumb ass

I find it very interesting in what statements and question C. gulley
is asking in the moderated proposals group. Evidenlty she is getting
paranoid and looking for ways in which she the queen of trolls will
be able to be shut out. She is doing nothing more than reinforcing her
mental attitude....but she is still one dumb ass no matter how you cut
the cake.

I feed small amounts of nori-roll, shelled green pea and vege scraps from
dinner that night.
lawnmowers, surgeons and hermits are all big fans.
I have been making my own 'weekend' feeders for a while now, and my mixed
vege's ones are very popular with the lawnmowers.
best advice I can give is do a bit of research and then try a bit of this
and a bit of that.
they can eat most veges we can!

Depends.
'Lawnmowers' are a group of blennys
I have had maybe 3 or 4 types including redspots and peacocks
and the redspots went the caulerpa stuff
Peacocks leave it alone....... unless they get desperate.
I am not convinced that they need vege matter from a marine source.
Not convinced they don't either, but figure they get enuf cropping the LR
and glass in the tank.
The rest is all just vege's from the fridge really. I have a lot of fish and
the cheap solution that works is the one I use.
had good luck with the random vege blends.
Just turn to mush and dry out into 'algae disc' looking things.
Can but try and they are certainly a very very helpful money saver.
Keeping Lawnmowers well fed = much less problems with them jumping/fighting
or getting sick or injured.
We all have our secret recipes, but I'm sure you can think one up.
besides it costs just a few cents to try.
leave them to dry
and feed away
never know could nail it on first go
better than $30 for a bag algae discs anyway

The blow is all just vege's from the fridge really. I accept a lot of angle and the bargain band-aid that works is the one I use. had acceptable luck with the accidental vege blends. Just about-face to concoction and dry out into 'algae disc' searching things. Can but try and they are absolutely a actual actual accessible money saver.
