I've not kept one, but from my research I gather they are not predators and manage in community tanks with peaceful fish. I don't know if any other members have experience, it is not a commonly-kept fish.

I would only keep it at one elephant nose in the tank, and your tank should be fine if its 80cm long

A tank that is that long (2 2/3 feet) will generally be 30-40g tops in which case I would not recommend keeping an elephant nose [9" fish in that tank] especially because they can be hard to care for and are picky + they prefer groups.
