Anyone have first hand experience with a Moorish idol.

So as the title states has anyone successfully kept one of these fish? If so what do you think is the most important thing you did to make it work? I have been thinking about one and reading up on them for quite some time now but still on the fence as to if I am going to go for it or not. Thanks

There is / was a member named "360" I think. He had a few threads, but long story short, he said their diet is mainly sponges. He said that he had a magic potion that would help to cultivate pineapple sponges, but again, I don't recall the name of it.
