Lor,
I can appreciate your enthusiasm...they are pretty. They are also prone to stress related issue such as ich.I have also read that they are susceptible to lateral line disease too. Quite often, you cannot get them to eat. IMO it is better to get larger ones as the small ones do not do as well, therefore they can be costly.
But, here are the requirements as per liveaquaria.com

Minimum Tank Size: 70 gallons
Care Level: Moderate
Tank Conditions: 72-78įF; sg 1.020-1.025; pH 8.1-8.4
Temperament: Peaceful
Max. Size In Aquarium: Up to 1'
Reef Compatible: Yes
Diet: Herbivore

Feed a steady diet of nori and drop in a grounding probe and away you go.

Nothing, it is a known issue with Nikons, unfortunately. I have best results with blue colors when using the flash, but that is still a hit or miss.
