Your ID's are right on. Both good snails for the tank. Just don't overfeed and populations should stay in check.

Cholla wood not at all. Leaves...I've used dried oak leaves in my tank before and they didn't stain the water either. Not sure about IAL's though.

I was doing roughly 1bps and had neos and they were just fine. pH would be around 6.5ish when lights were on and CO2 off at night and pH would raise to 7.6. No issues.

You could have an endless amount of shrimp in a 75g tank. The bioload would not be an issue with a good filtration system, some plants, and hardscape.

Some people keep the various neo varieties but I found that they don't like lower pH...at least in my experience. They lived just fine but no breeding if that's a concern for you.
