They won't get eaten. What kind of pleco? Look everywhere in tank and out. By the way nice tank. Small or big pleco? can blend in good.

I wouldn't have added any more fish to that tank. It is highly overstocked as it is with high waste producing fish. The pleco will now be adding to an ever increasing bioload. Have you still got plans to upgrade very soon? The brown algae you are seeing is called diatoms. It is very common in the first few months of a newly setup tank. You shouldn't buy a fish to eat it because it will go away after a few months on its own. After it is gone you will have to supplement the food if the pleco more often. Is it a common pleco or a bristlenose?

Free tanks are great!
I would return him. Your tank will still be overstocked even with it being a 75g. 75g is be enough for your Oscar and that's it. If you plan on keeping all those fish including the pleco your looking at a tank in the 200g+ region. Oscars can grow fast! One inch a month.
