Not sure about the vampire pleco, what's the scientific name?

What size tank do you want to put it in, because there are a bunch of different plecos and some get very large and shouldn't be kept in anything smaller than a 75g (100+ preferrably).

Do you have L007 or L029? (The spots on L007 are bigger.)
What size tank? As both species reach 10'' you'd need a decent sized tank.

The L239 would be fine in a Discus tank in my opinion, but some people may have worries it would try to suck the slime coating off your fish.
