But mine never ate any of those things. It’s only a problem now because there is no algae in the tank for him to graze on. Maybe he does have a parasite though.
I could never isolate him and quarantine him with Prazipro, though. He would not let me catch him. If you can isolate him, that might give him a chance.

By the way, I also moved some algae from the sump to the DT just for him....wouldn't touch any of it but used to be a pig about it. :/

I doubt I could isolate him. I have a large tank with tons of rock work and he’s kinda timid when I put my hand in the tank.

Yeah, I was afraid of that. I'm sorry to hear that. I'm pretty sure Prazipro would've saved my blenny if I could've treated him with it.

Seems like the only course of action is to try to get him to eat something as the others suggested.

I’m gonna try that now. How should I soak it in garlic?
I use Garlic Guard and just soak the pellets in a glass bowl or use a dropper to add it on the sheets of nori. I sometimes rip the nori into bite size pieces and soak those with the pellets.

Do you believe the benefits of a UV sterilizer to be a Myth or Reality?
