Snail Problem and cute loaches

Posted By: glv <vardyg@altavista.com>

I have a snail problem in both my 25 gallon fry tank and my 45 gallon tank. The 45 gallon has small platties, swordtails, otos, corys, and pearl danios. The fry tank has fry from around 1.5 cm long (mostly swordtails). I have heard that loaches like to eat snails. I have a few snails which I want to keep, they are larger. What size snails do the small loaches eat? Will they eat my fry?

Thanks for any help you can give.
