IMO, return him. This is the 75 gallon, right? He's going to get super aggressive and torture your other fish, at the very least. That fish is not meant for a 4' tank IME.

I have kept them in various tanks. Right now I have one in a 150- He's a bit of a bully, to say the least. There's nothing special you need to do to care for them, but If he starts to get cranky and attacks whatever else you put in the tank, it's nothing that you did.

I kept a powder blue in a 110 for a couple of years (until I moved and sold the tank) - I had good luck just doing the basics: water changes, lite stocking of the tank, etc - I think I made sure I mixed up the food for variety at first just to make sure he was eating well and he did fine

I don't recall the temperature but I made water changes at a rate of about 20 % every 2 weeks - I will say I was pretty strict about not missing these. As for food; I believe I used a product like this:
