Rhinoceros Beetle from Australia

is this a hercules beetle / rhinocerous beetle? what do they eat?
This beetle was found in Brisbane, Australia. My son wants to keep it in a fish tank. Any info on habitat and what they like to eat would be greatly appreciated. I did a little research I think apple and banana Will be eaten. Thank you

Hi Chris,
The Geocities website has a nice page on this Rhinoceros Beetle, Xylotrupes gideon. There is nothing mentioned about food for the adults, but fruit is a great place to start.
