Pleco w/oscars in 100+ gallon?

My water ph is 10, and is hard to lower because the KH is 240.
do you think that a Sailfin Pleco will be ok if the water ph is around 9?
I was thinking of making a tank with 2 oscar, and one pleco.

do you have any other suggestions for pleco that will do well with oscar?

I was reading, and I saw something about how a large pleco might strip the scales off of an oscar or koi... and I dont want that to happen.

I've successfully kept a Common Pleco with two Tiger Oscars with no problems at all.

That PH is awfully high. The Pleco and Oscars would get along OK, but they wouldn't do well in that water. Take a look at the fish profiles in the upper left corner for more information. Maybe some of our other members have advice in this area.
