Start with 4 and keep watch on its stomach.At 6" that should be plenty.A varied diet is best.
What else is in the tank?

feed him till he shows no interest, then remove the uneaten food. definitely a good time to get him on a varied diet.

it's in with 2 balla sharks and a iridecent? not sure how its spelled. i tried frozen krill but he doesn't show interest what so ever.

They should get along fine as long as the tank is the right size.
What size tank and filtration have got set up?
Frozen krill should be thawed in some tank water first,the fish will enjoy it more.

u could try sum guppies or minnows for varity, plus if hes not hungry the wont get the tank as dirty as crickets or worms they will just swim round till he eats em
