    What Else Should I Add

    You should add some plants. The decaying plants should be good for bio films and I would add a fair bit more wood. Tannins help to calm fish and keep ph lower where plecos like it. Bio films and algae is what the baby bristle nose should feed on at first.

    Yeah. Probably a pond/bladder snail. Ramshorns and pond snails are super common to have ride in on plants. That's how I got most of mine. I do have Amazon puffers so I ask stores to give me any pest snails they have and dont want whenever I go.

    Cool Pest Snails

    That's a ramshorn snail. They breed relatively slow for what people consider pest snails and help a lot with cleaning up dead plant matter and left over food. I keep them in any tank I can. What fish are you putting in this tank?
