what is your room temp? I'm not sure about celcius, but in farenheight they do well anywhere between 65-82*F so as long as your room temperature is more than like 68*F I'd say they would be okay. Plus they have a much lower bioload than snails.
BUT you could also go with a single snail. They dont really have any specific requirements. I've had some living in a bucket in my basement for about a month now with no issue. (they sit in front of a window and theres some old plant clippings in it)
I'd go for some java moss and look at stem plants since they are easier to keep short. I have a couple tanks that only get natural light and they have cabomba, moneywort, java fern, wisteria, and frogbit in them --These are all clippings from my main tank that I moved into these 2---But they are growing fine!
