Re: Bottomfeeder question
What other fish do you plan to keep? At that temperature, some bristlenose, Panaque maccus, corydoras or Platydoras costatus would be nicely added. The last one can eat small fish however if given the opportunity so it can be disadvantageous if you are planning a community. There are hundreds of plecos available however research the species getting tempted to buy one.

As far as snails, brigs would be my recommendation or some Malaysian Trumpet Snails. Cherry shrimps are also popular and cheaper than crystal red shrimps at least.
