You didn't mention how big they are, but perhaps they just aren't sexually mature yet. In any event, these things can take time. If you just got the fish then they are probably still stressed and so breeding is the last thing on their mind.
Fish have 3 prime directives - don't get eaten, eat, breed. That is the order of importance. When you get a new fish, especially one like a pleco, they immediately find shelter. They will not eat until they feel it's safe to come out. Even then, the fish is not totally at ease - they are still skittish. Eventually, they become comfortable in the tank and that is when you can expect breeding. How long that whole progression takes varies by fish.
Thanks for your reply
I would say the plecs are almost fully grown,mega clown plecs are one of the smallest plecs you can get which is one of the reasons i got them and i think they are well settled in by now.
As you say i will just have to wait and hopefully see
