The hoplo is not a particularly shy catfish but will still appreciate some cover in the form of rocks, plants and rock. Water flow should be slow or still, although the fish will adapt to stronger conditions. Sandy or fine gravel should be provided as the fish enjoys rooting through the substrate in search of food. Lighting is not critical and should be tailored to suit the plants used.
