Talking 2 plecos/one tank?

Hey all!! Its been awhile I know. So I moved a few months ago now,but have yet to move my fish over. I have been contemplating how to go about it and just had a thought today. Is it possible to have 2 BN plecos in one tank? If so,how big a tank would it have to be so they would live peacefully with each other. I am searching on CL for a good deal on a tank and stand,but would like to know what ya'll think first. My dark BN is bigger than my albino BN by maybe an inch or so. They both have grown since I have had them,but neither are that big yet. Thanks~

3 gallon male betta
10 gallon male betta
12 gallon QT
30 gallon
1 Pl*co, Brochis Splenden,False Julii Cory,Pygmy Corys,Female Betta,Harlequin Rasbora,Tetras
55 gallon Possible Barb tank?!

This type of info is included in our fish profiles, and the Bristlenose Pleco is in the profiles. Just so you know; it pays to check the profiles.

They need wood by the way, rather than rock.

The aquarist is one who must learn the ways of the biologist, the chemist, and the veterinarian. [unknown source]

Something we all need to remember: The fish you've acquired was quite happy not being owned by you, minding its own business. If you’re going to take it under your wing then you’re responsible for it. Every aspect of its life is under your control, from water quality and temperature to swimming space. [Nathan Hill in PFK]

Well I got the tank. It's in pretty much excellent condition. Just some calcium deposit stains and horrible color painted on the back lol. Can't wait to get it up and running.

The paint is gray. But it's starting to peel off anyways. I'd like black or dark blue.
