I know you didn't want advice on fish habits or whatever, but I have no idea what you may or may not know about the BGK and I am concerned over the health of any fish in an aquarium, so I hope you'll permit me some comments.

At close to 20 inches mature size--assuming it is healthy and develops properly--it will need a tank that is at minimum 6 feet long and 2 feet wide; being inflexible, it cannot turn around in anything less. As for the driftwood, this fish is nocturnal and will try to remain hidden in bright light--or will if it is healthy; a fish that swims around the tank in light is not healthy but stressed. And naturally living among sunken branches and roots, this is natural. Dim light, helped with a good cover of floating plants, is essential for this fish to be stress-free (which equals healthy).
