    I would feed it NLS at that size. Once he is too big to be satisfied by that, a variety of prepared foods (raw, fresh or preferably frozen) from the seafood section will probably be best.

    Just FYI, but gut analysis on wild TSCs shows they eat freshwater crabs and shrimp, fruits and nuts. Same for SA RTCs, actually.

    I would probably feed him like sinking wafers and carnivore pellets. If you want, you can buy silver sides and cut it into small chunks. Try that. I feed my bichir this and I cut it into 3 pieces and he is 7" long if that tells you how little to cut it. And this fish gets really big, what size tank you have him in and what filtration?

    Kuli is right. You are looking at a fish that can get upwards of at least 3 feet long. You will ultimately need a huge tank, I'd say 220 at a bare minimum, preferably more like at least 300 gallons or so.
    8 tanks running now:
    1x 220 gallon, 2x55 gallon, 1x40 gallon long, 1x29 gallon, 1x20 gallon long, 1x5.5 gallon, 1x2 gallon
    Gouramis, barbs, rasboras, plecos, corys, tetras, fancy guppies, swordtails, ottos, rainbow shark, upside-down catfish, snails, and Max and Sparkles the bettas.

    Atleast a 300g is what I say. I was tempted by one at my LFS also but I passed knowing that it got big, even though he told me it only got like a foot long, he told me the same about the redtail and I know that is BS.
