If you only have 1 than he'd be MUCH happier in a group of three. Is he doing good on the snails?

Ahh. Right choice! :D Make sure it has lots of friends. :)

Regarding plecos not going well with discus...Actually, if the pleco is fed well, it will not want to feed on other tankmates. Depending on the pleco, if you give it the variety of foods it requires, it will not search elsewhere. For example, with us humans, we will not eat food on the ground or in the garbage, unless we cannot find any other source of food. So for most herbivorous plecos or otto, feed them algae discs, blanched zuchini (corgette), frozen skinned peas, fish flakes, etc.

If your tank is large(about 55 gallons), 3 can be kept. They are fish that love to socialize and you'll need to get 2 more(depending on the tank space).
