I have had a Zebra Pleco for about three years.  I feed him sinking pellets.
Only occasionlly do I see him out in front of his large piece of driftwood
eating.  He has never bothered any of my plants nor any of the other fish in
the tank.  I think you would really enjoy having one, just make sure he has
hiding places in the tank.
