you can buy those automatic feeders (there machines, not those little chalky blocks that are meant to last for a few days) they cost around 25 dollars each, you can fit around 2-4 weeks food in there but for a fish that big you might need quite a few of those machines....

not really, needs at least 6 feet (72 inches) by 2 feet (24 inches) by 2 feet (24 inches)

the tank will be ok while the fish is still small but when it is fully grown it will need a tank that big.
