Captive Care: What a great utility fish to help clean up many sorts of Algae you will find in most aquariums. These guys are a lot of fun to watch and have great personalities as they perch on rock work. Note that these fish will starve without an established tank that doesn’t provide sufficient Algae. Most Blenny species don’t tolerate other Blennies (or fish of the same shape) in the tank and Lawnmower Blennies are no exception to this rule. Keep singly, unless in a large System or a Male-Female pair. NEVER keep with Seahorses or Pipefish.
