Help Id this Catfish please...

Hey guys, I hope this is the right place to post this...

A pet store was going out of business so me and my old man went in there to look around he feel in love with this tiny catfish that had long whiskers....well the pet store people had him in bad conditions and no description of what type. I felt so bad for this baby and knew we had to take him home and give him the best chance at living. Well that was 4 months ago and know he is...well....big. Lol.
I was wondering if anyone could help tell me what type of catfish he is.
Pictures aren't the best because this big boy likes to hide in his rock cave a lot.
Thanks for any help!

Not sure either but agree with above, you may have a monster on your hands!

From the pictures I can't id it for sure, but I don't think it will be on the next episode of river monsters, the body is long and thin, like a pictus cat (it's not a pictus) instead of a wide head and heavy body like a blue or channel cat. If you can get any clearer pictures it would help with id.
