Yeah a royal pleco would be fine but plecos are dirty fish and poop machines. Have you tested your nitrates out of the tap?
I’d recommend no Royal pleco. Most Royal plecos get about 2 feet, not only that they produce a lot of waste which in turn increases nitrates.

So I’ll get it tested there
Scrap the appistogramma and definitely no rams, if you want added color Do A blue acara instead of the dwarf cichlids! the acara and Severum will do great together as far as cichlids go they are both super peaceful and too big for bichir to take down I have some together now with zero issues a 75 is kinda small for 2 adult Severum with the other fish mentioned if they start spawning I’d probably just do 1 of each cichlid you could swap out the second Severum with something else and not have to deal with fights breaking out you could do a chocolate cichlids firemouth festivus angelfish or even earth eaters the pleco would be fine but a total poop machine I gotta agree with what the last guy said

If you're looking for plecos with minimal bioload look at bristle nose. Stay around 4 to 5 inches full grown and do a decent job cleaning algae.
