Elephant fish can be rather delicate, and u must provide them with some kind of cave or place to hide. I have always had good luck with the larger gouramis, blues, golds, and opaline. They get pretty good size and they usually wont bother any other fish. Angels are a good choice too, mine are very well behaved.

yeah they are really awesome they have a very unique body shape and they can move around their nose for sensing. they are also said to have a large brain and be one of the more intelligent aquarium fish

Boesemani rainbows or Denison barbs could be some good options.

Pearl Gouramis or moonlight Gouramis would work

Silver dollars are semi aggressive, the elephant nose sounds good

The elephant nose would do best in a species tank.
