Definitely QT it so you can monitor and it can learn in peace.
Not all CBB will eat Aiptasia. In my experience it is more common that they don't eat it vs they do

what the CBB i kept ate was pods. he constantly picked at the rock and i'm sure he may have eaten some tiny aptasia, but there certainly wasn't enough to sustain him for the 4 months i made him suffer. i really hate that about this hobby. some times i feel like i should never again purchase a fish that wasn't hatched in a tank. it's heart breaking.

I agree completely and (at the moment) all three of my fish are tank bred. Unfortunately, I don't think that i can keep it this way.....
