Great to have you here!

Well its crucial you have lots of plants right off the bat, is it possible for you to get some more cheap plants like egeria najas or densa (if you can find it...) or hornwort? Its think that will help a lot with you algae problem.

Also I have a Aquaclear 30 and its way to powerful for a 10 gallon you may consider just taking it out and putting in more plants to let it catch up and in the mean time find a smaller filter.

It sounds as though you did find the right snails, if it looks simlar to a ramshorn you can always put it in and see how it goes if plants start to look really ragged take it out. :)
