Hello, I've had a 50gal tank running for a few months now. I will be purchasing a Banjo Catfish, specifically bunocephalus coracoideus. I'm pretty new to this and have never had any bottom dwelling fish. What and how much should I feed them? Thanks you.

It's really not possible to tell how much to feed - There are too many variables for a one-size-fits-all answer. You're just going to have to use your best judgment on how quickly food is eaten and the condition of the fish.

I go by the tummy. If the tummy looks distended after a few hours, that's too much. If it's plump, then that's just right.
I hope that helps!
Edit: and I say a few hours because I've noticed that my bottom feeders often do not finish their food as quickly as the other fish.
