I kept two BGKs in a 10 gallon (
oops) for a year and they were fine. I moved them to my 29g when I got it, and they were really happy. They had enough room to swim around and got along fine, never any fighting between them. But when a pleco got smart and swam upside down to get some of their food while it was floating, well... that didn't end well for the pleco. They poked his eyes out, poor guy. I would not recommend anybody try keeping two in such a small tank. BGKs all have different personalities (or maybe I just had a male and a female so they didn't fight). Some can be kept with tetras and others can't be kept with anything. I don't have any experience with elephant noses (I'd like to try though) but with BGKs, if you want more than one, try either buying both of them as babies, or buy two at once with a guarantee from the pet store that you can return one if they fight. I was about to suggest you buy one, then the other, but they probably would fight then. Good luck!
