Cut a corner pvc pipe and then use an aquarium safe glue to put rocks on it. Looks good

what do you mean by putting rocks on it? do you mean like lots of little rocks or a big flat rock?

The pleco would be happy underneath a peace of driftwood. Sometimes even make a hollow out of it for a cave. But you can do build a cave for both.

I'm currently building one by sticking some rocks together with aquarium silicone.

panda cories
bristlenose pleco or clown pleco (depending on availability)

Any suggestions?
Hi looking forward to seeing this tank all set up. I currently have a 29 set up very similar to what you are talking about. My stock list is
2x electric blue ram. (mating pair!)
5x black neons
6x endelers guppys
8x Corydoras various species (they all shoal togeher even with the plecs!)
2x pitbull plecos
2x african dwarf frogs

Everyone get along great and tbh when the rams spawn as long as their tankmates are community friendly they won't want to get in the way of your rams fiercely protecting their eggs.
Just a word of warning though if you are planning on raising any fry either remove the eggs or the parents before they have laid as corys and plecos are terrible for pinching protein rich eggs!

The female starts to look rounder in the belly and it turns slightly pinkish. (i believe it's a bit harder to tell on the bolivians and gbr as their bellies are all ready a little pink.)
