Black Sailfin Blenny and a Lawnmower Blenny Same tank?

So I am noticing a small green mossy looking algae starting to grown in my 75g tank. I have reduced the amount of light my lamps are on, reduced the amount of feeding to once a day, and have done a water change several times. I have a black sail fin blenny in their now but he is not touching the stuff. I have been told to get a Lawnmower blenny to eat the green algae. However doing more research i am seeing that putting 2 blennies in the same tank is a bad idea. So would it be beneficial for me to get the lawnmower blenny as well and I have nothing to worry about or is their something else I should be doing to help eliminate this algae growth?

 

Thanks

Yeah everything i've read on them (or tried to anyway) there will be blood unless you have a really really large system. It's a shame to because i would have a whole hoard of them if i could.

 

What other fish are in the system with the black sail fin now?

Sounds like you could use another herbivore, maybe try one of the smaller tangs if your bioload permits and add a few turbo snails and some trochus snails if you haven't already.
