I like wood shrimp and bamboo shrimp! Actually, I can't think of a shrimp that I DONT like...As far as snails go, I like ramshorn the best, for their shell.

I've always though red cherry and crystal red shrimp looked amazing. Looking to buy 10 cherries or so after my tank gets sorted out.

i like all shrimps, but cherry and crystal are good ones, then again, tiger shrimps are kinda cool.
as for snails, the hugh apple snails, but they creat a lot of mess. red ramshorns are nice

Crystal reds are awesome but sensitive.
Crystal black/black diamond/bee shrimp are very cool and a little less sensitive.
Bumble bee shrimp seem very intelegent.
Wood/bamboo shrimp are very spectacular with there fans. but get rather large.
Red Cherries are probably the best all around IMHO.
They keep the tank and plants extremely clean and are least demanding/sensetive.
Overpopulation can be a problem as they mutiply faster than snails.

I also like Ramshorn snails for there color but again overpopulation can be a problem and plants can suffer.

This animal is called:

Atya gabonnensis

It can become about 6 inches tall, but its completely harmless, cause it lives from plancton, which it filters out of the water with those fans it has instead of those "scissors" (???)

You find almost white animals, reddish ones to dark blue that its almost black.

are those feathery things part of the shrimp or a plant?

I like shrimp with drawn butter and...okay, BAD humor there.

I like my gold and blue mystery snails. Not too much experience with shrimp, but cherries are really great looking.
