Recommend me a loach?

I am setting up a new tropical freshwater tank. It's almost finished fish-less cycling and I'm getting ready to get the first new fish.

I have rather a lot of snails so I thought it would be a good idea to have a loach. I also plan to get tetras and in future some angelfish.

My tank is about 150 litres (sorry don't know what that is in gallons). We have soft water which is slightly acidic.

Could anyone recommend a good loach for this set up? Is there a type which is ok on it's own or would I need to get more than one?

Thanks very much for your help.
