It feeds on algae....maybe try and get a rock with GHA and put it in your tank. I had a bi-colour blenny before that was eating nori. Not sure if the lawnmowers will eat nori.

My blenny ate freshwater algae wafers. He loved it. I just through 2 or 3 in everyday and he was fine with that after he cleaned up all the algae in the tank.

I tried feeding ocean nutrition green marine algae. And i have lots of green hair algae for him to feed on. That is why I got him. My back panel has lots left.

If I'm not mistaking you use FOCUS for internal infection or parasites.
Maybe someone could just confirm

have you tried other food before de-worming? two weeks and he's still alive...
not yet.. end of the month I will get formula 1 vegetarian flakes hopefully he eats that..

have tried nori with no luck.
will try catching him this week end and put him in my qt so I can only give him the food and all my other fish does not eat it instead.
nori dipped in entice. hope that works.

My blenny eats just about anything but I noticed that he particularly like ocean nutrition sinking formula 2 pellrts as well as tetra prime pellrts which is actually discus food but most of my saltwater fish like to eat it
