Question Apple snails?

I am setting up my 55gal, as some of you know, and I would like to have a few snails. As of right now, my axies are only about 4.25" long. I figured, because apple snails get so large, I could have some in there and they wouldnt harm each other. I do, however want to have a planted tank, and I dont know if apple snails would harm the plants. Could I put, maybe two in this tank? Dimensions are 48x12x21" (LWH). If I cant have apples, is there any species that I could have that wouldnt pose a problem to the axies (both sucking on them and impaction if one did strike their fancy..)? I did a snail search on here and I got many, many with snails as a problem, none that would really help me here.
