I'm sure if you were into fish before, that you know to cycle your tank anyways. Both of these fish need a good aged, cycled tank.
I used to keep a Brown Knife. He was my fav freshwater fish ever. He would actually let me hand feed and pet him! He ate the flakes I gave everyone (he was in a mixed community 55g, flakes were TetraColor Crisps) and also frozen bloodworm cubes. He wouldn't touch freeze-dried anything. I'm sure BK's would take other live or frozen stuff, I just tried the froz bloodworm cubes and he loved them, so I stopped there, LOL.
On a side note, they are definitely nocturnal. Mine had a great cave to hide in and would not come out till the lights were out. So make sure it definitely has a good hidey-hole, and don't expect to see him zipping about all day like they do there at the store.
