A lot of plecos are nocturnal. He probably comes out at night to eat. Drop in a wafer for him after you turn out the lights to make sure he's getting enough to eat.

150 Gallon - Mostly American Cichlids
135 Gallon - Angelfish Community
75 Gallon - Odd couple (Polleni/Angelfish)
55 Gallon - African tank
20 Gallon Long - QT
10 Gallon - Empty

Clowns can be really shy. Maybe try propping a piece of driftwood in the front corner of the tank so that it forms a kind of cave? He might try hanging out there and that way you'll be able to see him better.
