Elephant nose fish, from what I've seen and experienced, are not kept by many planted tank enthusiasts.
They get big, need companions and non-aggressive tank mates. Think of those large Arowanas, cichlids that sit there in these huge tanks...those are usually the type of tanks that house Elephant noses...not planted tanks.
They are quite smart, as anh said. Gorgeous fish but I can imagine some technical issues with having them in a planted tank that requires more maintenance.
