This is a very difficult fish to quarantine. The biggest challenge is acclimating it to prepared foods. I recommend putting some live rock with coralline algae in the QT (at first) for it to eat/scrape off. After that, they will usually (but not always) accept XL pellets (of all things), and then you can get the fish eating other things.
