    HI,

    I RECIEVED MY LAWNMOVER BLENNY ON 26//09/09.
    HE IS 8 CM IN SIZE,HE EATS THE HAIRE ALGAE.
    HIS NAME IS SID BECAUSE HE HAS HIS OWN PERSONALITY.
    I WILL ALSO GET SOME PALLET FOOD FOR HIM - THE PET SHOP ADVISE THEY FOR FEEDING HIM PALLETS AND HE WAS EATING IT.
    i JUST WANT GET SOME PALLETS SO HE HAS SOMTHING ELS ALSO TO EAT AND TO AVOID THAT HE IS STARVING.
    HE MAESES SOME OF THE HAIR ALGAE THAT FALLS TO THE GROUND AND HE LEAVES IT. WILL MARGARITA SNAILS EAT THIS?

    SEE PICS BELOW OF SID.

    Hi, :wave2:

    He eats a lot of hair algae during the day.
    The back of my tank was full of hair algae and yeterday there are about half left.
    That is way I want to get some pellets for him.

    I see he does not eat the hair algae on the live rock as yet.Maybe he is happy with the algae in the back of the tank.


    I notes he can change color to match is surrounding.
    when he is in a spot where there lot of light in a open space he goes almost weight and when he is by live rock he goes darker.

    Yesterday when I stood by him he slowly changed colour from wite to his normal colour - I guest he was getting scared and wanted to go.

    Clown ;)

    This was the 1st fish I ever got! Really cool and its almost all the algae in my tank! can see the little "kisses" all over on the glass from where he eats!! I try not to feed him to mush as he gets lazy and instead of eating my algae he waits for his pellets. I just feed Sera Marine pellets.:thumbup:

    if u run out of algae (unlikely :)) he will happily take nori too. actually a good idea to put some around a rock for him and leave it in the tank so he gets used to it as a food source

    hi I have the same fish. He or she is a replacement. Last one vanished(must have died)
    My concern is that he is getting very thin. I most definately have enough algea. I also put norri in the tank. Its only interaction with it is to sit on it. Won't eat the stuff. Any suggestions? Please

    HI ALL,

    Can you believe that 5 months has flew past so quick......
    Here is a quick update and pic of sid sine I got him on 26/09/09.

    He changes colour almost just as dark or light as where is sitting. He is almost fully grow , he is about 10 cm now.

    He love to sit on the mercury temp reader. he is realy fun to look at. I call him the camelion of the sea with is eyes moving around.
