alot of people have had sucess with plecos and P's and there have been a lot of people that havent.

looking at your sig i would say swap out the sanch with the red.

Yes, in time the pleco will probably get picked on and of course the red belly will get bigger....which isn't good news for that pleco.

well, since the red belly is little, more then likely when he is hungry the red belly would pick on the pleco...As the red belly get older the pleco will most likely die...Just don't now it, it is a waste of money IMO

I have had a bristlenose pleco in with my P's for over a year and he is still fine. Keep your P's well fed and have plenty of hiding places for your pleco and you should be all right. Just keep in mind that anything could happen and there is always a chance that your pleco can become a casualty. Good Luck
