1) Will a 125 gallon tank be sufficient? If they get to 3 feet long, I can't
see why they would fit in a 18" wide tank.

2) Where could I get a captive-bred specimen?

3) Will it learn to come out for food? SOme of my catfish are so nocturnal
that they will never, ever show their face in while the lights are on.
