    blennie not eating

    got a lawnmower blennie to help cut back on hair algae. Looks like he is wasting away - not eating that I can see. Any ideas?

    This seems to be too common

    Have you tried nori?

    Yes, by all means, try Nori. Mine ate all the hair algae in the tank, so now it sits on the clip to remind me to put the Nori in.

    ok, worth a try. Ive got some nori, do I just put it in a clip or do I need to do something to it first?

    Just put it on the clip, or you might add some garlic?

    bummer....he's gone, nothing seemed to work. Did see him picking away at things but not enough I guess. Any suggestions on hair algae control organisms?

    A sea hair will take care of all the hair algae. Problem with the sea hair is that it most likely will die after the hair algae is all gone.
    Some place will take back the sea hair afterwards. Kinda like 'renting'.

    I got a Bristle Tooth Tang. Eats everything, hair algea, Red algea, brown Algea, even the little fish decorations that are on the heater! LOL!

    Seriously though, he doesn't stop! Definetly worth a try! Funny fish too!

    Why is it called "cargo" when it goes by ship, and "shipment" when it goes by car?
