    Two days ago my blenny was fat and happy. Today his little tummy is pinched in! There is hair algae, bryopsis, red fuzzy algae of indeterminate name, and at least 5 kinds of macro in the tank including some slightly out of control caulerpa. I let it all grow on purpose to keep him fed. The only...

    My tank is a 55 gal-- can I add a Scooter in the same tank as a Lawnmower Blenny without them going after each other? I've always heard "no two fish of the same general type".

    My Lawnmower Blenny has fattened up considerably with no new food sources, no green grazing algae available. Is it possible to be with eggs, with no opposite sex? Anyway I took a video of it. Have to focus manually so bear with me, new camera. About 13 secs in, shows belly the best. It has...

    Caught the arrow crab munching on the lawnmower, poor guy. An then today saw the crab go for the little goby, and the fish scooted away, dragged out part of the dead lawnmower an offered it to the arrow crab like a peace offering. I assume once the carcass of the lawnmower is all done with, my...

    I keep buying Lawnmower Blennies. They do fine for a week or two, then turn white, do weird contortions with their body, behave erratically, and finally die within 24 hours of showing these symptoms. That's 3 in a row! All my parameters are fine. The tank abounds with inverts. All my other...

    So I sit down to tank gaze and I notice that the rock my shroom is on is out of place and upside down. So of course I don't think anything of sticking my hand in to turn it back over. All of a sudden, Beaker ZOOMS out from behind the big rock and WHAM! Bites Me! The stinking brat! So I kept on...

    So I got a lawnmower blenny, early on in my tanks life, to help with a green algae issue. It actually became one of my favorite fish and was always out and about. Only problem now is that he has effectively stripped my tank of every strand of algae there. I bought the dried stuff from my LFS...

    I've never owned one. How's their personalities? Do they require vegetable matter in their food? Please share your pic's and stories. Thanks EC

    Have a lawnmower blenny for few months now.... I see him eating at the glass and such, however, concerned he may not be eating enough. At the lfs they had a big lawnmower and the guy threw in MEDIUM size pellets and the bugger grabbed one or two!!! I've not ever seen my smaller lawnmower...

    I came home from work to find my blenny being cleaned up by the cleaner crew. I have had him for about 18 mo and he was big and fat when I bought him. Does anyone know how long these fish normally last. I haven't tested the water yet but my last tests were great and everything else is doing real...
