What are the done things for rabbits these days?

Hi everyone :) I used to come on here years ago but not had a rabbit on about 5 years now. We’ve adopted a 9 month old male called peanut. From what I remember it was the myxi vaccine and RHD 1 & 2? Is it still the same? He’s come to me on the Russell rabbit muesli, I used to feed haygates and science selective, what are the decent nuggets these days and when should I’d I transition him? I used to get my males castrated when the testicles had dropped is it still the same? Apologies if I sound stupid it’s been a while since I’ve owned a rabbit. Any idea on his breed? Thanks in advance for your help!
