Yo-Yo with Guppies

Sorry if this posts twice. We just set up our first aquarium--a 20 Long with a Marineland Bio-Wheel 125. I put two live plants in when I first set up the tank, a Cobomba and something that might be hydrocotyle? pennywort? The clerk didn't know. (Now I look at plants at the pet store that identifies them). After 3-4 days we added our first fish, 5 guppies. One died the next day, possibly of Tail and Fin Rot. I treated the others with Melafix and they are doing fine a week later. Now we suddenly have snails (I didn't know to soak the plants first). very tiny, very cute, very much eating my plants. I've seen clown loaches in tanks with guppies, but I don't have room for 3 clown loaches. Would Yo-Yo loaches make good companion fish for guppies? They wouldn't grow so big and I like their looks. My water is bracki
