Do Kuhlis Eat Snails?

I posted this question Friday, but didn't hear from anyone yet. I have a new tank. 20-Long, 4 male guppies, 3 Kuhli loaches, a few snails accidentally brought in on live plants. I was afraid the snails would eat my plants, so looked for Zebra or Chained Loaches for snail control. I didn't find any at the LFS, but I loved the Kuhlis I always saw, so I bought 3 of those to eat all the food the guppies miss. I was told Kuhlis don't eat snails, but I intended to keep looking for Zebras or Chains. Now I find tiny empty snail shells every day or so. The bigger snails are still cruising along, but no little snails. Whatcha think?
