Plecos are a very hardy fish, but like all aquarium fish they should be kept in pure water conditions for good health. I have several varieties, from 3 to 8 inches in a 60 gallon, heavily planted tank and change at least half the tank water every week.
You simply need to keep the water clean with large, weekly water changes. The fish and plants will take care of themselves.
