What do you feed him?

What's his substrate?
All these answered will lead me to the answer which I've already got one in my head but I wanna know these things first because it could be horrifically wrong if one of those is out of the ordinary!
By albino bichir I assume you mean an albino polypterus senegalus, which in my opinion, need at very very least 55 gallons, you may want to consider upgrading his tank. Thankfully bichirs aren't fast growers so you have some time!
