Sorry for the loss of your pleco.
Sometimes they do wedge into tight spots they can't get out.

Sorry to hear you lost one. When we don't know it always makes us wonder what happened.

I keep an L191 Olive Royal Pleco (5.5 inches) and a 14 inch common with my 8 frontosas and they never bug eachother at all. As long as your plecos are big enough and their plates have grown, they should do well with fronts. Slight difference of preferred pH though... mine's about 7.5

That is a nice Royal!!!!

The nice or bad thing about pleco's is that you can keep different genus together.
Often two adults won't get along very well of the same species, but if they are different then they usually don't hate each other and will often be right next to each other.

Sometimes it does not matter though. Some will fight other plecos of different species, even other catfish such as Syno's.

I added L182 to the list, as most people are looking for an algae eater.
Most bushynose are way too small for a frontosa tank, as a frontosa will try to eat them and choke because they can't spit them out due to bushynose barbs.

L182 gets 7-9 inches, is a good looking pleco (black with white spots), and does a fine job of eating algae.
also not difficult to locate for sale.

Lots of plecos do well with fronts. I currently have a 4 inch blue phantom and a 6 inch vampire in with my colony of Moba and there are no problems. The only thing I do not like is the high ph requirements for the fronts because the plecos do much better in soft, acidic water. Plecos should be in sub 7.0 and I keep my fronts at about 8.8-9.0!
