Your stocking looks a little all over the place. I would advise you to stick to a smaller number of species. Cardinals+otos+pair of rams are popular for a reason. I especially recommend only having one type of schooling fish, but have a lot of them. It produces a nicer effect than a mishmash of different types.

In terms of inverts, it depends on what fish you keep. Rams/cardinals/otos like soft water, which eliminates most of your snail choices, and rams love to eat shrimp.

On the other hand, CPDs like harder water, so you could try them with any snail or with a few larger shrimp, like amanos. You could try cherry shrimp, but the CPDs might eat them.
