Can I house theses two plecos?

Hi everyone, just after a bit of advice.
I am just after abit of information/ advice.
I have recently brought a blue phantom plec(L128) and I was wondering if I could put a green phantom plec(L200) in with it? I have a 200 ltr tank, wil plenty of hiding places/caves and mopani wood.
Thanks in advance.

I don't see why not. Which of the two L200 do you have? The Baryancistrus or the Hemiancistrus?

I don't have one yet, I just have the L128. But I think it's the Hemiancistrus

I thought they can interbreed though?

If it is Hemiancistrus that it probably would interbreed, since L128 is Hemiancistrus.
