I was kind of thinking the same thing.
What was in the other tank and how was he caught, in order to get from the old tank to yours?

Age is relative, you are only as old as you act....of course, this works in reverse....

Questions loved, heeded advice greatly appreciated!

when i picked him up there was live rock in the tank and when he tried to catch him it scared him and he thrashed through some of the rock work. that is why i am leading towards it being scratches of abrasions as opposed to mhlle. if it turns out that he will only eat live what would be the healthiest way for him to get a balanced diet? thanks

They do look like abrasions to me, but keep a close eye on it because bacterial infections can become a problem due to their soft tissue.

Stick with gutloading ghost shrimp until you wean him onto prepared foods. Until then, go easy on the krill as it has shown negative effects in predatory fish when exclusively fed. Shrimp, squid/octopus, silversides, crab, etc can be offered and all can/should be injected with supplementation (selco, etc). I'd also recommend a feeding stick (rigid airline tubing works well) and try to coax the lion into thinking the food is alive (may take several tries).
