Ceylon Puffer fish will without doubt eat all your ramshorn snails and quite 
quickly. It takes a little longer for it to get into the MTS.


My 4 Clowns loaches seem to never touch snails.
Most loaches will prefer feeding from you than bother with snails.

So unless you can get your feeding much reduced your loaches will probably 
hardly touch them.

Get yourself a snail trap and use it once a night for a week.

I made an effective snail trap using 2 Sofa caster protectors and a 3" 
screw. Worked just as good.
