Using aquaclear 50 on it, 20% water change weekly, planted.

Anything wrong with this stocking list?

6x Albino Cory Catfish
3x Blue Fin Killifish (Nothobranchius rachovii_
1x High-Fin Lyre Tail Swordtail (Xiphophorus helleri)
6x Neon Tetra
5x Green Glofish (Danio)
3x Orange Glofish (Tetra)
1x Dwarf/Bristlenose Pleco (Debating)

The Killifish I'm not too worried about getting aggressive with each other, if they do I'll separate them (plenty of tanks around the house).

Thanks a bunch! Happy Reefing/Planting :)

PS: Are like 5x (ish) Nerite snails going to survive in here?

I wouldn't keep that few glotetras. Those are skirt tetras, if I remember correctly, which get mean if kept in small numbers. I'd scrap them and go for more danios or neons.
Other than that, I don't see any issues. I'd maybe throw in a few more neons and danios, if I were you.
One warning; get really healthy-looking Glodanios. They're getting a bit inbred by now, so they can sometimes be more fragile than zebra danios.
Yeah, fiveish nerites would be fine!
Keep an eye out for Batman nerites and horn/spiny nerites. Unusual to find but well worth a little bit of poking around. Very neat.
