I had a horrible snail problem about a month ago in a heavily planted tank.
I mean it was bad I just picked out anywhere from 20-50 daily and scraped off the egg sacks from the plants.
I originally was trying to buy some assassin snails which I still might do just to be absolutely sure but honestly if you are just dealing with a 20 gal it should be pretty easy to handle

you could also try Yoyo loaches they would help out and I haven't heard of them messing with shrimp before but I would research them more if your going that route
