The snowflake isn't brackish as an adult - it is full marine & 125g is not enough for those fish.
Monos grow to the size of a tea plate & are shoaling, Arius grow to longer than a 125g is wide.

I've never had one personally because I don't have a salt water tank. That, as diademhill stated, is the key here... they are a salt water fish. I think you need to take yours back or find someone with a HUGE saltwater tank to home him.

Without doing some research, for the smaller of the species, I would say at least an 8 ft. long tank by a couple feet wide... which would be at least 200 gallons or more tank. And, if it was me I'd go several hundred gallons for fish like that.
