Smile Plecos with cories, fine?

Dear bros, I have a L204 with my cories and now I am going to add on a couple of L46. Under your experiences, will it be fine? Hiding place should be sufficient. Hence I will like to know if my tank has sufficient hiding place for the three plecos to hide?

Am on iPhone now, shall include the tank photo at a later time. However from my previous tank shot probably you can let me know huh. Thanks in advance to all bro!

tried before! Should be ok as long as you provide caves for the plecos. Mine and a bro plecos also manage to breed with cories around.

Got some pygmy cories from JZX a couple of days ago... sharing some pics. Really love these fellows.... small, cute and active.

Sometimes they swim in the mid level...



Usually they hang around shady areas on the ground!





My sand is not more than 0.5cm deep.. but these guys really dig hard!

L46 are very shy. They might not get enough food. The way to get around tha is to feed at night. Also, they might not want to do anything for the first few days in the tank. Or even months. Be patient and let them settle in.

It's counter intuitive because you may panic if you don't see them feed for a long time, but it's not a matter of if but when. They will eventually get used to the routine I promise.

To be extremely honest n brutally blunt, I find Pleco not cute looking at all.
