I have a Juwel Vision 260. After rocks etc it comes down to about 50 gallons. Currently I have the following:

6 yellow labs
4 cobalts
1 featherfin

I am getting 4 rusties delivered in the next couple of days. Is this number of fish ok? They are all around the 2 inch size at the moment and look a bit lost in the tank. People have said my tank looks nice and asked when I'm getting fish in it - lol.

I would like to get another pleco too if it's not too many fish.

Planning on buying an external cannister filter to help with filtration (Eheim 2218?)

Two plecos with your three species should be fine, as long as the tank is 48''. Watch your plecos - mbunas are know for eating their eyes and then the plecos die soon after. I wouldn't risk it myself, but some people have plecos and mbunas happily together.

I have yellow labs and cobalts myself. Love them :)
