We will need to know which specific fish you have in order to be able to suggest a suitably-sized aquarium.

Something we all need to remember: The fish you've acquired was quite happy not being owned by you, minding its own business. If you’re going to take it under your wing then you’re responsible for it. Every aspect of its life is under your control, from water quality and temperature to swimming space. [Nathan Hill in PFK]

I hope you have lots of space for some very, very large tanks. The Facebook link didn't work when I tried it just now, so I started looking up the fish. I will stop with the first, the Asian Redtailed catfish. This grows to a minimum of 38 inches, and some sources put it at 52 inches. A tank 10 feet by 4 feet by 4 feet is absolute minimum.
