Yeah I do alot of water changes. But it surprises me that my bro doesn't do alot of water changes and he grew alot of algae and our tanks were set up at the same time. I still dont have any.

You might have to add some supplimental food for the Pleco. Zucchini, or cucumber slices attatched to a rock, or algae wafers. It might starve otherwise.

Yes that is very good for them. I take the seeds out of the Cucumber, but lots of people don't. Just my personal preferance. Zucchini is good for them to, and it holds up a little better than cucumber does. If you want to grow a little more algae in your tank you can try a longer photoperiod each day.
