How good are they at getting the MTS?  I currently have a tank with a good
population of the MTS, and am looking at adding some zebra loaches...
will it be the death of the snails?  (I can tolerate some attrition)
What about skunk loaches, or yo-yo (aka: pakistani) loaches?  Are these guys
more or less effective than the zebra loach at murdering my snails?
