That's a certain no on the shrimp. While I've never had cichlids I can tell you that far smaller and more peaceful fish have gone after my shrimp, and those shrimp were adults not juveniles. Depending on the size of cichlid you get even the larger amano and ghost shrimps won't be safe with them. Most people use shrimp as feeders for cichlids.

I can't speak for the snails.

Depends on what you mean Mitch. My africans love to eat juvenile snails because their shells aren't hard yet, but they tend to just eat the "tentacles" off of the adult ramshorns. They will also eat the egg sacs
