Get yourself a true lawnmower blenny, (Salarias fasciatus) my one chows himself dik on the hair algae, he doesn't stop, every time I look at the tank he is eating, doesn't matter if it's short or long, he mows it.

I'm not sure, I placed a special order with Wilfred, maybe try the 2 shops in Northdale, I can't think of their names right now, but make sure you get the true lawnmower blenny.

No, we get a different but very similar species. I was advised to rather get the true lawnmower blenny.
