Thank you, I have him in a 10g cycled qt tank and have read up on them for about a month before getting him. His home will be a 75g deep blue drilled to a 20L sump. I am running a bubble magus curve 5, filter sock and some purigen. Tankmates are two sunset mocha clowns, and a blue tang. All the fish are 2" or less and he is about 1.5" now.

Any suggestions to what to feed him in the qt before putting him in the DT? I've read a lot about store bought clams and other foods with shells to help trim the beak.
