As a former Pet store employee, I suggest you thank your wife for her gift, ask her in the future to get you a gift certificate from your favorite LFS
instead of actual fish and return this fish to the store. Corals, anemones, shrimps, live rocks etc are all in jeopardy if you introduce the Idol to your reef cause that's what they eat in the wild.
That's what I would do unless you have a large tank with lots of open area for him to swim. They don't usually do well in confined spaces.
Hope this helps
