New clown and albino plecos

Well I simply went to the lfs to get some krill for mr picky pants oscar and ended up bringing home two new plecos. I have passed by a bristlenose when they had one in once and they never got anymore, so I have learned my lesson and pick up the neat stuff when I see it (haven't seen the farlowella since I got him home a month ago though). Anyways, I have the cutest little clown pleco and a smallish albino. Anyone have any experience with these guys, and what can you tell me? I know there are conflicting opinions on whether clown plec's do anything and that they are quite shy...but they are so cute I couldn't pass him by! I am guessing my albino (who was sold as a "golden") will get to be a big monster like my common? No problem there, they are in a big tank, though I do prefer the smaller plecos.

No personal experience with these two, but have a look at this site, loads of info on plecos.
