a bullhead is a native
(New England)
predatory cat

I'd say a 30 gallon tank would be ok while it's young

my sister-in-law caught one 14" once 'tho
so eventualy it would need a 75 gallon or bigger

(the side spines are probably poisonous,
so don't get stuck)

I don't usually have that species
(you can catch one if you go fishing)

we have many types of african and south american catfish

If you do go out and catch one for one of your tanks, you must keep it through the duration of its life.

You cannot release it into the wild if you come up with other plans for the fish tank.
