If you want snails with African cichlids your only hope will be with Malaysian trumpet snails (MTS). Bottom feeders you can try loaches or synodontis.

No chance of a Pleco? Or some ivory snails or an apple snail?

Pleco will sometimes work its not guaranteed. But most of the time they work out. I haven't been able to keep any type of snail in mine

I will most likely be getting juvenile cichlids about an inch or so in length. Will that mean I can't grow them from young to be with snails?

A 29g is too small for a common pleco, they get too big.
