    Is it possible? Will the Snail disturb the shrimp or eat the babies?

    What shrimp are you keeping? The snail shouldn't disturb the shrimp at all.

    Depending on what snail you have. if you buy those snail from LFS your plant should be save, however if you got it from some pond than your plant is at risk. Snail will not disturb your shrimps as whose move faster? Most they will eat up some of your shrimp food.

    There are Apple snails and Mystery snails(bridgessi, also sold as apple snails), apple snails will eat plants, mystery snail does not. Choose carefully.

    apple snails poop more than ramhorns, if that is the reason you are getting apple snails to keep your aquarium clean. they will also compete for food with your shrimps. you will be surprise to see how fast they can detect food that you feed to your shrimps and then just selfishly take the whole piece of food for themselves.
