Try feeding him nori soaked in garlic extract (garlic extreme). It sometimes gets fussy fish to eat.

I have tried the nori, but he just goes past it. How about putting some cheato in the tank?

I have a wad of Chaeto in my display and my LB doesn't touch it. I let the back glass get fairly grown over with stuff, hardly clean it and he's often munching away on stuff back there. Mine had never gone near the Nori either, except to perch on top to the veggie clip.

I only clean the front, the sides and back are full. As we also have a urchin to feed.

Did you try soaking it in garlic.
Also try spirulina disks. They go to the bottom. Try with and without garlic.

I have a lawnmower blenny and he eats the pellets from New life Spectrum http://www.jlaquatics.com/product/fd-nlms150/New+Life+Spectrum+Marine+Fish+Formula+Pellet+Food+-+150+Gram.html

He will come up and eat them as they are sinking.

My lawnmower blenny wont touch prepared foods, I dont clean the back of my tank, between the back and the live rock he seems to get enough, he has a fat belly.
