That's good to hear, mine likes pellets as well and will fight for his fare share amongst his tank mates!
Any luck with a prospective buyer?

I was planning on getting one for my 125 tank but Ive read their captivity survival rate is extremely low. I dont think they were meant for a tank :-(

One of my lfs owners has three at home. Beautiful fish, they love a variety of foods, live, and grazing. He rotates rock once a month from a tub hooked up to his reef. They love to just cruise and are beautiful. He has them in a 180 and they cover it quickly. He's considering putting them into a 240 as they swim so much and just go back and forth. After seeing how much these guys cruise and how fast they are, I get where a 300 would come in the picture.

Very difficult to keep for their life span. Anyone who is prepared to do what it takes to care for one has a good chance, but you need to carry that care on for years and years faithfully.
