Queen loach question

Hey All

I got a pair of queen loaches for my 30 gal, to help clean up my snail problem. I went in asking about skunk loaches, my LFS said these guys were just as good at cutting the snail population down. My question... is that true? I hope so. These guys are much cuter that the skunk loaches I previously saw.

Also- any special needs I should be aware of? Brightly lit planted tank, 30 gallons, community tank w/ pink skirts, 3 killifish, SAE, gold nugget pleco, dwarf gourami, 2 kuhli loaches, and about 10 cardina japonica shrimp. Lots of ground crew... I do supplement algae discs for these guys, and I have bottom feeder tabs.
