Typing it in, twice as wide, 3 times as long, 3 feet high (considering a 20" adult). Comes out at 450 gallons. It's not about amount of water in this case, it's about dimensions to keep this fish comfortable. As stated, this fish cannot bend it's spine.
Yes it's an electric fish, but it doesn't kill with electricity from what I know. Progressing into adulthood they lose their vision and they rely on the electric signals to see.
If you need some convincing, just YouTube some videos of how these fish move. It's quite unusual.
This fish does not belong in the hobby. Sorry to say. Almost all of them will die really young.
