I avoid putting my plecos in my cichlid tank although I did keep 2 BN plecs in there for a while. The thing I did notice is the plecos hid most of the time in the cichlid tank and only came out on occasion to feed. Now that they are in a peacefull comunity tank they are out all the time and very active.

I have never kept a royal so I don't know what kind of temperment they have. I would think being a larger plec it wouldn't be as intemidated by the cichlids. All of my plecos are on the smaller size. (L204,L163,2XL102 and 2 BN)
I don't see a problem with severum and terror if you divide the tank up well so they can establish their own territories. The royal will want his domain as well, some drift wood and a cave nearby.
