The Orange Spotted Lawnmower is commonly referred to as the Redspotted Rock Skipper, Redspotted Blenny, and Orange-spotted Blenny. The Orange Spotted Lawnmower spends most of its time grazing algae over the rock surface or the bottom of the tank. The Orange Spotted Lawnmower is mostly found resting or perching upon rocks, so introduction of plenty of rocks is must for it to survive well. The Orange Spotted Lawnmower looks for places where it can hide or take refuge when stressed or frightened, so rocks with rubble forms make a good addition for this species. With its unique body form, it makes a captivating addition to any tank. The body is red and white with bright blue and orange or reddish spots, hence the common names red-spotted / orange-spotted rockskipper. Rocks encourage the growth of natural algae on which the Orange Spotted Lawnmower can feed in between its meal. The Redspotted Rockskipper is considered reef compatible with caution, because it can nip at stony coral polyps and clam mantles. The Orange Spotted Lawnmower should not be kept in a tank less than 30 gallons. The Orange Spotted Lawnmower thrives well in a temperature range of 72-78 degrees Fahrenheit and pH of 8.1-8.4. The Orange Spotted Lawnmower is a peaceful fish, and it is safest to keep only one fish unless you have a true mated pair. The Orange Spotted Lawnmower can feed on vegetable matter, blue green algae, blanched vegetables or prepared foods for herbivore fish.
