Turbo snails shouldn't be in a 10.
Did you mean Astrea Turbos? Sometimes LFS advertise them incorrectly. The tank looks good though!

Also, people will advise you no clowns in a 10 unless it's the only fish.

Though I wouldn't do it, with good filtration and skimming it is possible. Why can't turbos be in a 10?

Starting first cycle need help

They'd most likely starve. The big ones at least. I had a turbo in my 20, (he got mixed in with my astrea turbos) and he died within a week. They demolish algae way to fast, you'd have to feed them in such a small tank.

Edit: OP- Can you take some pictures of them?

I got a Ocellaris clown and the damsel kept on pestering him so i took him back to the fish store, and here is a picture of those snails, i know they are way too big for the tank now but oh well if they die itll leave a shell for the crabs and ill buy smaller snails, any suggestions on what kind of snails? and thanks!

It's all good. Those damsels are mean... I try to avoid them at all costs. You may be OK with the snails. You'll just have to wait and see. How many did you get?
