Personally, I have bristle nose plecos in all my tanks, including the Frontosa tank. The plecos need some hiding spots, and do their job mostly at night. There is some risk that a Frontosa might pick up a pleco and try to eat it. If the pleco that is about to be swallowed spreads its gills in the mouth of the Front, it can get stuck and you can loose both fish. 7 years later this hasn't yet been a problem for me, but it's a risk you should be aware of. Other than that, gravel vacuum and algae scraper are your friends :thumb:
