Haven't had the Midas for too long but there have been no issues whatsoever. Haven't seen the Midas bother anything else in the tank either. This is in my 210 BTW.
My Kole tang keeps chasing the LMB every time he sees it so the LMB keeps a somewhat low profile in the tank.

its questionable, there could be or could not be a problem but my friend had both and the lawnmower got really aggressive and made the midas jump the tank

Well, atleast I know my kole tang isn't the only one that hates lawnmower blennies lol. My kole chases mine as well.

No problems at all with mine. They don't even seem to know each other exist in my 110G. The midas and pink square anthius fight constantly though.

These two are considered two of the more territorial blennies but luckily they generally occupy different area of the tank so you may be ok.
