Whats a good loach to get?

Hi ya all,

I'm looking for a loach to help with snail control in my new community tank - the perfect one would be:

* Small
* Easy to get hold of
* Happy on its own
* Able to get along with the other fish
* and keen on eating snails!

The other fish are:
6 Kuhli loaches (never seen them eat snails though!)
2 Ancistrus (bristlenose catfish)
1 Siamese flying fox
2 Pearl / Lace Gourami
10 Platys (4 of which are going to be moved out when the tank matures)

Any suggestions would be gratefully received ;-)
