If the fish are doing well, there is no reason you can't add snails. How are your water parameters, have you checked them with a test kit? You want to start off slow to give the tank time to cycle. What type/size of snail and how many?

too many snails often means malysian trumpet snails in my experience lol. They reproduce very rapidly. You can try it, although might want to watch and see if your fish eat them.
