The Family name is Loricariidae. There are at least a double handful of genera that I can think of off the top of my head, and most of those have several to many species. </pedantic>

+1 on the Bristlenose. Albinos are gorgeous in an HP Lovecraft sort of way.

I'd shy away from Rubbernosed/Bulldog Plecos. They really like a river tank. They like higher oxygen, faster current, and lower temperatures than most species.

Clown plecos are beautiful, but you'll never see them.

Most plecos appreciate driftwood, but Bristlenoses (and clown plecos) actually need it in their diet.
