I've got 2 pygmy chain loaches in the belief that they would keep my 
ramshorn population down. They don't touch the snails. Worse luck.

I've a 4' 200L planted tank and its pretty close to capacity as far as fish 
go. So whilst I'd love to get get a couple of Clowns loaches I feel they 
would grow too big for the tank.

Any suggestions for a small snail killer?
