Ok....I want add a snail into my tank so it can eat all those uneaten flakes and things off the bottom, but which one?...

1) I don't want more than one in my tank
2) Musn't eat plants
3) Not get harmed or harm any fish
4) Doesn't get rediculously big!

.....Any suggestions?

Mystery snails will do it! I have some that are about an inch or so. I don't think they get bigger than that. Apple snails will grow and grow...applesnail.net says they can get to be as big as a baseball. Another perk is that you can actually see and pluck out the mystery snail eggs if they lay any.  Mystery snails are also sexed, so if you just get one, you won't see any eggs ever (unless you buy a pregnant female.)

How big is your tank? Why not add a couple more cory cats?

Yes, if you have room, Cories like shoals of 3 or more. You will see a lot more activity with more of them.
