There are a number of fish that are referred to as zebra plecos so make sure you know what you are getting.
Would Drip acclimate this fish and provide stable tank rather than new tank ,And some water movement would be appreciated.
Could feed the fish at night after light's have been off for a few hours.
This would bring some security /comfort to the fish while acclimating to new surrounding's.
Would be sure to do sizeable water change after placing plant's if substrate is disturbed to any large degree ,to prevent possible temporary ammonia spike from organics disturbed while planting.
