I keep tuxedos in my frag tank and yes, they do sometimes nudge corals, but I have never seen them eat live polyps.

Bought the blenny the other day and i love it! Its the perfect addition to my reef. It hid for the first day but then it found its new home in my paly colony and tries to pass for a polyp. I had the LFS feed it mysis and watched it eat before i bought it and yesterday it was eating the nori i put in the tank so i know food will not be a problem since i have no GHA. Im glad i got it.

Try and feed him somthing with algea in it, as i said emerald entree frozen food is good, it has all the stuff they need! You can get it at petco,petsmart, almost any chain store that sells fish. Your other lfs may have it aswell. Its about 7$ for a pack, has lasted me 2-3 months feeding 1/4-1/2 a cube a day with some mixed in brine. Good that hes eating!
