You might try something like rod's food it is a mix of quality foods I don't know how you will get it to the sand bed that is the only problem. Have you taught him to target feed? My fish all eat from my hand and know when the turkey baster comes into the tank there will be special food. Also try to get something like garlic guard to mix with the food.

I have a friend at work who will take him. I don't wanna risk putting him back in my 29g. Besides, it would be like you living in a one room efficiency and moving into a million dollar mansion with everything you need and then being kicked out back into the efficiency.... I dont wanna do that to him. I also don't want to supplement his food, and risk it being too late. My friend needs a sand sifter anyway, and really doesn't have much as far as fish in the tank. He has an eel, sail fin tang, coral beauty, and a banded shrimp all in a 125g. So he'll be welcome I'm sure. Can't wait to buy a house- I'm just a couple months away so I have room to build a big tank and won't be so restricted.

I have been using a turkey baster to target feed him otherwise the clowns eat everything before he gets a chance and they keep him on the bottom during feeding. I feed him mysis and occasionally brine shrimp. He eats drifting pieces of cyclop-eeze and feeds all day on copepods, alternating sifting sand. I would think this is a good diet for him but I'm going with the LFS and thinking that it's essential to have a good sanded. I know that there's not many microorganisms in the sand for him because he's always pulling from under the rocks where I haven't siphoned. There's trenches all around the base of the rocks where he's doing this. I think the best bet is to give him to a friend with a large and established sand bed. Would you agree?
