Five to seven larger size, a few more smaller growing out until they get bigger.

I would remove the albino pleco to another tank if it were me.

I am assuming the albino is a bristlenose. It likes different temps and foods than zebras.

Is it an ancistrus? probably a bit warm you really could do with getting it out and letting the zebs have the tank to themselves :)
