Can plecos go into a shallow aquarium 14"H

An aquarium has come up for sale online and it is kind of shallow, 14" high length is 51inches, width is 12 cms, it holds 180 liters. So its sort of shallow, narrow and long.

I have my hopes on eventually getting a Leopard frog pleco, or a Ornico Angel pleco, and a longfin bristlenose.

Would an aquarium those dimensions be ok for those fish?

Is it too shallow?

and is the size ok for 3 pleco species that grow to under 6 inches?

Leopards don't like bumping into each other too often, they are territorial, the tank with the biggest 'footprint' I.e the largest floor area is the best bet for fish like that
