Snails

I have a 55 gallon setup with plenty of structure and plants. Within the tank reside four Kuhli Loaches, a Clown Pleco, and several Mollies. After ridding my aquarium of those clumsy, plant terrorist Clown Loaches I am now up to my ears in snails.

What loach would be best suited to control them? I hope to find something that does not grow too large and will allow my plants to stay planted. I am thinking maybe Striata's or YoYo's. Any suggestions and experience with them would be appreciated. Alternative ideas are welcome too.

Thanks, Mike
