Just a quick word of caution about your choice of common pleco (Hypostomus plecostomus). They grow very big. You are better off getting a bushynose pleco (Ancistrus cf. cirrhosus ), which stay much smaller as adults, and are readily available and inexpensive because they breed easily in captivity. They are primarily vegetarian, and do require some driftwood and rock work, caves, to hide in.
