The best loach hiding spot ever

I have seen many discussions on here about interesting places loaches hide. I have seen a unique place. A snail. When removing some new fish out of a quarantine tank I put them in a bucket. There was a live apple snail in there. The kuhlis were quite upset, since they had no place to hide, so one of them crawled into one of the snails. The snail was quite annoyed about the situation,and was as far out of its shell as it could be to try and avoid the irritation. There was nothing I could do about it until the loach decided it was time to come out. I now keep all large snails out of tanks with small kuhlis in them.
