I wanted to add my dime in here on the snail deal. I still have a
couple dozen APD mails to catch up on, but thought I would through out my
thoughts anyway. There are more to loaches then clowns. And almost all
loaches eat snails. At least the botia types love um. I have noticed that
one of them particularly adorers them, and that's the Botia striata. The
B. striata is a particularly small loach and I have never seen mine bother
the plants like the clowns and B. dario do. Soo my solution is get a
smaller more plant friendly botia. A Botia striata or Botia rostrata would
help you out enormously! I have a 20 gal that had MT snails and red rams
horn snails, ALL snails were gone within days of introducing 7 B. striata.
AND on top of all that the loaches are great little fish!
