Digging is a natural behaviour for Hoplo cats (Megalechis thoracata), so they are not a good choice for a planted set-up where they will happily go around uprooting plants. A soft sand substrate will be kinder for their long sensory barbels too, as some gravels can be a bit rough. Hoplos get to a reasonable size so require a spacious tank (a 55 would be ok for juveniles but this would need upgrading at some point) and they really should be kept in good sized groups with lots of shady hiding places amongst the decor.
Hope this helps,
