Also wait until the tank is established, not cichlid but has a good algae colony going already. Makes sure the pleco has food. Also if you check where you typed Clown Pleco its shades a diff color? Click that and it will give you a link to a care sheet on how to take care of them.
Clown Plecos get to be about 5" and need at least 20g, although they would do better in a 29g. They need driftwood in the tank, they will also need fresh veggies to supplement their diet. Even if you had a tank full of algea, algea does not meet all the dietary needs of this pleco. Also plan on feeding some kind of food with protein once a week.
