55 gallon pleco species/stock advice

i am in need of a pleco but i can not choose the right one for me. i am looking for examples of some good plecos or other bottom feeders and any suggestions for another tank mate for my 6 giant danios and my green severum.

Bristlenose pleco is always a fine addition, albinos look nice as well but maybe avoid the long fin versions

That would make sense. Haven't you heard? We make yogurt, not sense.

Same species just 2 common names that mean the same thing, bushy bristly its still pointy things.
