Snails are an awesome addition to any aquarium and are quite harmless to your fish. Some fish, especially the pygmy sunfish you mentioned, are snail specialists, to the point that my tanks requires very active management (separate breeding tanks) to maintain a snail population at all. Smaller soft-shelled pond snails or ramshorns will provide a constant supply of small food that will promote breeding in Elassoma. No real experience with apple snails, but I know their breeding habits are very different and they are hard on live plants, which the fish you mentioned all love.
