Good snails to clean the tank but look nice.

So I need to make some sort of list of snails that are fairly large, breed-able and look exotic. When i say breed-able i mean something that doesn't breed so I have to restart my tank because they took over I have made a list at the moment that. contains rabbit snails and ramshorn. Im going on the weekend to all the fish shops in the area.
Thank you if you actually help.

You could also put in only one of several different kinds. 1 ramshorn, 1 rabbit, 1 mystery. I have one mystery snail is each of my tanks with nerites. The only snail breeding going on is in one tank that has some bladder snails that I can't get rid of (smashing several daily for months now and removing any eggs that I see)

My vote goes to horned nerite snails. They look cool and are excellent at consuming algae

The pest ramshorns in my tank, the ones that came as hitchhikers on plants, have never grown bigger than 1/8 inch. There are bigger species though, usually the species you have buy.
