Any inverts for my SA cichlid tank?

I'm trying to have a biom tank for the amazon...right now it has sand substrate and 1 chocolate cichlid, 2 rotkeil severums, 1 firemouth, 1 mayan cichlid, 1 pictus cat, and 1 bronze cory(the rest of the cories were demolished overnight..why he survived...IDK).

Anyway...I would like to get some inverts for the tank...possibly some clams and shrimp...but i need to know what inverts(if any) are native to the amazon?

Thanks!!!(Nothing over 6 inches for crabs or crawfish or shrimp please....clams i'm fine with though)

BTW my name is Jonah...I think this is my first post but IDK.

Welcome to

I don't think there is a snail or shrimp that will survive your severums, mayan, uaru and firemouth. You'll never when the snails will be eaten. Shrimps though are absolute meals to them.

I'm ready for the pressure.
The drama and the pleasure!
If there is one thing I want to see here, it's HUMOR.
I believe I can fly!
I believe I can touch the sky!
I think about it every night and day!
I stand in awe of my body.
