Loaches & Shrimp?

Posted By: CJ Oliva <cjoliva@hotmail.com>

I have a new, heavily-planted aquarium and have just added some shrimp to help with algae control. I've found some small snails in the tank and I'm sure more are coming.

I would like to add a couple of small clown loaches. Would they go after the shrimp (1"+ long) when they are done with the snails? If so, do you have suggestions for a snail-eater that would be more compatible? Thanks in advance.
