The traditional clay flowerpots are (or should be) safe. If it is new, wash it thoroughly.
BN pleco I would hold off on until the tank has been running. These fish do best when algae (their natural food) is available when first introduced, and this is not normal in a new tank. Also, one might be best unless you can be sure of male/female; males can get aggressive and need space.
