depends on who you ask and what you consider a nuisance as well as what type of fish you plan on stocking.
i personally have snails in all of my tanks as they clean up any leftovers, eat some algaes, and look cool if you appreciate them for what they are and dont have a negatively biased opinion. if you overfeed to much you will probably start to consider them a nuisance when there population explodes all over your tank but then that would be your own fault because ive never seen a snail that could beat a fish to a meal.
as for the fish, Botia species aka loaches will eat them, in which case you will have no problems with nuisance invertebrates at all.
