Mixing Plecos

Hi all.

I’m looking for some of your expert advice as the dreaded google search’s return contradicting advice. I have a 250l tank. (1200lx450dx550h) Lightly planted, some logs and caves for hiding. My question is can I have 2 species of pleco? I have a king tiger pleco, but my would love a zebra?

I don't know about specifically with that species, but I have a 60 gallon (227 L) roughly 122cm x 33cm X 63cm, with a snowball pleco and two golden blue-eye longfin bristlenose. The two species pretty much ignore each other. I have a few otocinclus in there as well. A local aquarist has a 125 gallon (473 L) with many many different species and a LOT of driftwood. He indicated that he did have some aggression between some of the more closely related species, but it seemed manageable.
