Botia Dario

I'm looking for small peaceful loaches which will control the snail population in my community tank. Botia Stiata was previously suggested but I can not find any. Botia Dario are avalible along with an unknown type of striped loach ( was recieved at lfs instead of the ordered botia stiata)

I have swordtails, corys, otos, pearl danios, platty, guppies, blue fin goodea dwarf frogs in two tanks and tiger barbs, mollies, gouromi, and pleco in one tank. I was going to get 3 loaches for each tank. Will darios be okay?

The avalible loaches in my area are clowns, dario, unknown sriped and kuhli but all are not always avalible.
