It was driving me crazy. I've seen one before, I only remembered it because of their cool stripped tail fins. However a little more searching and it could also be Semaprochilodus taeniurus or Semaprochilodus insignis. All three species look really similar. But judging by the number of google hits these two species are much more common than the first one I listed. Also slightly smaller- max size is now 10" .

My guess is that it is
Semaprochilodus taeniurus, cuz that was the one with the most google hits. Usually means it is the most common.

My tinfoils, not the same fish, but similar, absolutely love skinned peas, any green leafy food blanched, cucumers, and blanched zuchini.
I use veggie clips to hold them in place.
Fresh veggies are one thing my tinfoils will fight over.
Good luck with your new fish! It looks very cool, wishing I had one.
