NFC: bullheads

    Will bullhead catfish eat pond snails?
    I ask this question because I weekly pull 10- 30 snails out of my planted 
tanks.  A nearby pond is full of black or brown bullheads.  I like the idea 
of not wasting the snails, and would also be able to get rid of my baby 
platys in-house.  I just bought several extra tanks at an auction, and a 
bullhead tank would not require a heater.  I do not want to use a puffer fish 
as a snail eater, and only keep new world fishes.
    Now that I think about it, bullheads must eat snails if they are first 
crushed.  I could do this, but would just as soon not.
    Thanks in advance for any comments.
