I understand MTS & Pond snails will eat dead plant matter...but in my keeping of shrimp and snails I have never seen them eat fecal material.( I guess that doesn't mean they don't but I do stare at my tanks way too long and would have probably noticed by now..:)
Also, some snails will produce more of that unsightly waste if you aren't careful with your feedings (Pond snails) My MTS don't seem to produce as much waste compared to all my other snails ( I have pond snails, nerites, golden apples) And if shrimp will actually eat that poo they would be the best as far as the lowest waste producers.
That is a downfall of having light and fine substrate. Most likely you are going to have to spot clean...I know we all want a magical poo eraser
