Assassin Snail is fine with the mentioned fishes. RCS will be eaten up and bullied by Mollies, not sure of the penguin tetras, but goes well (OK) with neon tetras.

Like the others suggested, lose the Black Molly. I don't see any substrate in your tank. Please add a dark colored substrate and some Java moss,pelia, weeping moss or fissidens. The snails and the shrimps will thrive.

You will have to remove the power filter as well as the circulation pump as per the picture. Rcs dont like that much flow and as every one suggested loose the molly.
You wont be able to breed rcs as tetras will eat baby shrimp / shrimplets
