Snail eaters for special tanks

Posted By: Taratron

Due to the fact our electric eel seems to have an uber fast metabolism, and despite twice weekly water changes, the snails have come out in full force.

Hence I am looking for a fish that will devour snails, and yet not be aggressive to said Pikachu...or not have the brains to run away when the eel eyes it! Eel has never been fed fish, only worms, and now wafers.

Also, in search of a good snail eater that will do great in a planted discus tank. Any ideas?
