Table shrimp,scallops,trigger formula ,squid and krill..
It is in the Rhinecanthus/ Balistidae family and will become quite aggressive ..May even end up attacking any fish you attempt now..Seeing as how he is the first one in the tank ,he's going to take ownership of it very quickly ..
What size tank do you have him in?

Its just dust from the rocks he's biting..Its normal for triggers to do this..

I know this wasn't your question ,but the current set-up (tank size) is not adequate for any trigger...It would be my advise to take it back

Yeah he'll be ok for 3 weeks in there ..
He won't be ok in a 75 for life though,a year or 2 probably ,but these fish grow ..
All triggers ,like tangs need a 125 + ..

Hard to say for sure ,but2 triggers in a 75 i would not do ..I would wait till you upgrade before attempting 2 triggers ..
