To re-iterate what caferacermike said, the lawnmowers will eat just about anything. They have voracious appetites. I wouldn't feed them lettuce. There just isn't enough nutrition in the lettuce to sustain a state of health in the fish. F2, algae strips, spirulina flakes, even frozen mixed veggies would be better than lettuce.
