There are plecos that will work in a 50g. Bristlenose, clown and rubberlip plecos all stay small enough. There are also many species of more "fancy" (read: expensive) plecos that will stay small enough. Driftwood is pretty much essential if you're keeping a pleco, and you definitely can't count on them to keep your algae completely under control. They also produce a lot of waste so they add to the bioload of your tank, rather than subtract from it.
