Moving it in the next 6-10w would be good. Any longer than that and I'd wait. My purple (which is really small) was so frightened and shy in my 15g QT. He is a completely different fish now that he's in my main. It was really surprising to me how dramatically the tank size affected his behavior.

As for what they eat, mine eat formula 2 and nori. They also get Formula 1 and prime reef when the tank gets those on alternate days. A wide variety of veggies is also good (like softened by freezing carrots, spinach, broccoli and frozen peas).
