Nerites are a good choice. They are well protected by their shell, meaning only a very small part of the snail is exposed. Too along the same lines, their antennae are significantly smaller than that of a mystery snail, which means they aren't as big of a target. Add to that their smaller size (for smaller tanks), no breeding and algae eating - I don't think there's a better snail option.

125 - BGK, chanchito cichlid, pictus cats, silver dollars, palmas bichir
125 - cichlids (severums, bolivian rams, chocolate), rainbows ( turquoise, red), loaches (angelicus, zebra, kuhli and horseface), plecos (BN, RL and clown), denison barbs, tiretrack eel, pearl gouramis, betta
90 - Congo tetras, african knife, upside down cats, spotted ctenopoma, kribensis, delhezzi bichir
2.5 - betta
