    Default lawnmower blenny in a QT

    0 Not allowed!
    I have a lawnmower blenny along with a few other fish in a QT after an outbreak of velvet in the DT. Getting the lawnmower blenny to eat has been a challenge since algae is not present in the QT and is not growing especially well due to the cupramine treatment.

    Has anyone had any luck feeding their lawnmower blenny in this kind of situation? I imagine, if he lives, he'll be in the tank another three weeks. I've tried pellets, algae wafers, blood worms, arcticpods. He shows occasional interest but I doubt enough to sustain him in the long term.

    Oh, also tried hanging nori on the wall.

    thanks for any advice,

    Get both red and green seaweed sheets by ocean nutrition. Wrap round a rock and secure with a rubber band. Add a few drops of kent garlic extreme,my lm blenny at this while in this rock as close to where the blenny hangs out as possible.
