Snails for my new 200l?

Im new to the whole big tank thing (200l, tropical, freshwater) and while I have researched fish keeping in this type of situation nothing gives a lot of information on snails.
I was thinking of some rabbit snails but thats only because I seen some beautiful black and white ones last time I went to the store!!

I have no real plants only silk ones, can I even keep snails? if so how many is normal to keep?

any info or links would be great!

Thank you! :)

personally i just love apple snails (mystery snail)

they grow to just under the size of a golf ball and if i had a 200l tank i would have at least 10 i had 9 adults and about 10 babys in my 160l they are very interesting i have entered an awesome pic of one for this months photo of the month comp

i know nothing about the snail you mention but go of the size i mentioned i would say between 8 and 10 would be ok but i am not sure you could have too many

the more important question is what fish do you have some are not compatible with them IE clown loach and plecs are know for eating snails
