they do graze on algea, hence the biting at the rocks. Although they are opportunistic feeders, they do tend to eat whatever will come into the tank, but I wouldnt be worried if hes not eating other prepared foods. Here is a question for ya, is ihs belly fat or does he look skinny. All blennies should have a fat stoach, that means they are happy and eating well. If you have one with a skinny tummy, then you need to worry.

he doesnt have a skinny tummy it looks normal i mean it isnt sunken in or anything. well my blue fin damsel seems to like the seaweed lol.

yes damsels will eat algea. Good to know that your blenny isnt skinny, that is a good determining factor for health for them.
