The bigger issue here is the maturity of the tank. Most nems will not do well in a tank that will likely be swinging parameters. As far as the feeding is concerned there is a large contingency that believe that feeding a nem is only likely to decrease its life expectancy and that it should receive almost all of its nourishment from photosynthesis. I am no expert but I have read articles that go both ways on feeding and I am sure it varies largely by species.
