Yes to the first 4 questions, as for peapods, any will suffice. I feed my juvenile black pacu winter peas and green soy beans still in the pod, but I boil min for 10mins and cool them before I feed them to the pacu. My pacu also eats live feeder convict cichlids, which I also breed for my ruby red spilo piranha. Before posting questions, please read online articles, care sheets, species write ups and other documents. This will benefit you more, instead of having to ask every question here. You should also know about your fish's background, eating habits and diet before purchasing a fish before hand.

Pacu get huge - unsuitable for a hobbyist. http://www.seriously...cropomum&id=450

Just a comment: You have an abrupt way of asking questions that is kind of off-putting. You might try starting with something like, "Hello everyone. I am hoping someone can helpt me with some questions".

@Nuttawet: As I posted above, please read up and learn about the fish you are buying. It's doesn't matter what brand of food, they will accept anything. The brand is totally up to you, whether or not you understand your fish's nutritional needs. Pacu need atleast 150gallons-300gallons depending on your species.

The peas are different sizes depending where you buy them, I live in Canada so I don't know how big the peas are in America. Generally snow peas come in a pea pod which is likely 4" in length, and the peas inside are smaller than a penny. Yes the Soybeans have little fur on the outside.
Just make sure its small enough that your pacu can fit into its mouth.
