Leptobotia guilliensis, b. histrionica and snails

I finally found some Leptobotia gulliensis(at least I think thats what they are) to put in my former aquatic frog/snail tank. One of my favorite lfs has some beautiful specimens that I thought would be great to replace the ones I lost to ich several months ago. I thought I would also get a histrionica or two since they have some nice ones also. I plan on putting the one I already have in there also. My question is do either or both these species eat snails? This tank has some ramshorns and two very large apple snails. I hope to eventually get rid of the big snails but not until I find a good home for them.
