Ferts usually are ok with Shrimp. But perhaps try starting out at 1/2 dose ? That's what I did with Excel. I worked up to full doses with no issue.
Look at PH and TDS as those can impact CRS. They...

Potentially sick molly? I'm not sure?

A. 79 is too warm for Panda Cories...they are a cool water Cory.

B. Once you get them healthy, Mollies need 30g or larger. 10g is too small for such a large active fish. It would tend to stress...

Pick one species you like, build your stock around those requirements.

Hmmm, Most snails only eat decayed leaves. You can also try putting a dish of greens or veggies in the tank after lights out. Pick it up during the night and remove the snails you trap.

If you are getting black algae , reduce your lighting. You should only run lights for 6-8hours at the most. Try 6 hours and gradually increase. Timers are under $10

I would not stock to 100%. I like to leave room in case I miss a water change. Under stocking a tank gives you more options. Granted online calculators aren't perfect.

If you get the Angel as a small one and raise it with the Neons it may never hunt them. Not because they are "friends", but because Angel is well fed and never learned to eat them ?

In Angels they measure across.
Tip of nose to just before tail. 4-6" max.

Tip of top fin to tip of bottom fin
8-10" max except Altums hit 12"
Thats why they need tall tanks.

You need to find out what water they are kept in and what they need long term. You may have to run Peat Moss to bring it lower for F1 Angels. Otherwise you might just kill them.

Since this is your first tank , I would avoid Rams. They are not a beginner fish. They are more sensitive and require warmer water than your other fish prefer. A single Bolivian Ram might work ?
