Ok, my lawnmower blenny has for the most part totally depleated all the of algae in the tank and will not take to the seaweeds or spirulina (stick on the glass SERA pellets) tabs that my tangs eat. Anyone else have any ideas for me so that I can ween my little guy off the tank algae before it is all gone?

My LMB loves Sprung's Green Sea Veggies (dried seaweed that you put on a clip). He also likes Formula Two frozen food.

Mine only cleans algae off walls and rocks, well, used to. One time, I saw him got a taste of the formula 1 and 2 pellets by accident, now he devours every food I put in tank. Flake, pellet, mysis, homemade food, etc. I think once turned dark side, they never turn back:strooper:. He still grazes on walls and rocks with a full belly every time I look at him. He is such a pig!

Thats what I feed my tangs, but the LMB won't go near it. I think I will try something either freeze dried or flake.

Try Formula Two flake or pellets. My LMB seems to like Formula Two better than Formula One.

Good luck!

My lawnmower eats only dried and clipped seaweed and spits out any formula two that happens to fall into his cave, and he is pretty fat.

I tried the seaweed and he seems to want nothing to do with it. I think I am going to try the Formula Two and maybe some spirulina flakes or pellets.
