I have no experience with the first species but the White Sucker is very
common locally (Montana).  White sucker make very good community fish. 
Mine were totally non-violent, even at feeding time.  They are omnivores
and will eat what ever is offered.  I think it is important to see that
they get enough vegetable matter.  The only negative factor that I can
think of is their size.  The adult White Sucker is not a small fish.
