An impossible dream?

How fun to find a forum devoted just to loaches! I am new to these fish but I'm lucky because the LFS in my area has a lot of the rarer species. Right now I have a 30g tank with congo tetras, otos and Amano shrimp. I'd love to find a botia species that won't a) harass the congos too much, b) won't get so big that they start going after the shrimp and c) will eat some snails. Is that too much to ask? I'm afraid any snail eater will eventually go after the shrimp, but I thought I would ask the experts.
