I like the idea of a pleco tank
If the missus would let me I would love to have a pleco tank like i used to with just Ls and peps. alas, living in a small unit does have its down sides
If you are looking into a pleco tank then I would def listen to the others about the plecos, although here is Aus we are much more careful when it comes to plecos as, for example, a zebra pleco fry at 3cms is prob going to cost about $800!!!!!!! so we like to cover our bases a bit before we jump in and buy.
The key with a pleco tank is hiding places, the more places they have to hide, the more likely you are to see them as odd as it sounds. I would firstly read up on what they need. some plecos are vege eaters, like the bristlenose, others like more meat like the Hypans, others still eat wood so you need to make sure that you have their diet covered. The other thing is that as you mentioned, some like more current others like higher temps so it is important to match the plecos you want.
Other than that, get the water right and go for it
lower pH, softer water, lots of wood and hiding places and generally higher temps and bam! you got a pleco tank.
Let us know how you get on
