Zebra Pleco

Would like to get a zebra pleco for my tank. Not interested in breeding them. Should I buy two fry or just one fry? Would it do better if I kept two or one? Would they fight too much if I kept two?

I'm not a fan of keeping only one of a species except for a few types of fish. Most fish are found in large numbers, so like the company of each other.
I have 8 Zebras in a 5 foot aquarium and 6 of them congregate together amongst a set of caves in the middle of the aquarium. They don't exactly cuddle up together but they do stick together and sometimes will be 2 to a cave. :)
The other 2 live in a large lump of hollow bogwood. I can just see them side by side through the hole they use as the entrance.
Some bicker now and then but I've never seen a fight. Doesn't mean they don't though.

Regards ..... Gary.

Zebra do not do well in most community type tanks. They will mostly hide when happy and healthy.
