are there any snails or other inverts that would eat decaying plant matter and missed food but not living plants to go in a tank with peaceful livebearers

Bamboo shrimps and Malayan Trumpet Snails are detrivores.

And actually once you get some shrimp, you'll be surpirsed at how much you like them. I have three amano shrimp in my tank and a blue crayfish in my other tank and I love them all, they are entertaining and REALLY great at getting that junk on the bottom of tanks.
