Question I don't know what aquarium I should get PLEASE HELP!!!

I have a Lima shovelnose catfish and i've read online that the minimum tank size is 180 gallons for just the catfish and nothing else. I plan on upgrading my aquarium to a 300 gallon tank just to go for gold and not have to worry about it. However I'm going to be moving in about 2 years and I don't think it would be even possible that I myself move it. I plan on getting a few chiclids when I purchase a larger aquarium. They only get about 5" to 6" long and of course my pleco. I just need an idea of how many fish I can get with what size aquarium. Example I could have a Lima shovelnose catfish and two medium sized chiclids with a 250 gallon aquarium. Please I just want a good idea of what size I need to get and what fish.
