My experience of snails with Africans is that they can either get their feelers nipped or end up being bullied into their shells. The only snails that might survive the harsh treatment would be Malaysian trumpet snails. Partly because they have hard shells and an operculum but also because they usually bury themselves during the day. I don't think they'd look great in a rift lake setup though.
Synos are probably a good idea since, being bottom feeders/foragers they'd tend to lift any dirt into the water column and thereby make it easier for a filter to remove it.
