Malawi Cichlids and Zebra Nerite Snail

Hey, I'm no expert in aquariums and so I thought some of you could help? .-)
I have a 50 Liters aquarium, with some malawi cichlides. I know it's too small for when they get bigger, so I need to give them away or something for that time, but for now they are still small enough to fit well in it.

But the thing is that I'm considering if I could add snails to my aquarium. I've been looking at what one can get and I think that "Zebra Nerite Snails" will fit well with volume and such. But I've also heard that malawi ciclhides can be agressive, so would it be problematic to add these. Form my own observations the cichlids have been relatively peaceful so far (also to the catfish) and I've been told that this spiecies is not one of the most aggressive cichlid species but don't remember the name unfortunately.

Do you think it would be possible to add Zebra Nerite snails (or some other snails perhaps?) without them being bothered too much by my fish?
Thanks alot in advance.
