Loaches vs Snails..... title fight!

Question: Can I put a large-ish snail in a 6 Gallon tank with 4 Kuhli Loaches (as well as 4 Pristella Tetras), or will they just consider it a Christmas feast?

They've recently porked their way through an outbreak of baby snails (after me not feeding them for 4 days over Christmas they ended up eating better than they ever have!), but I'm hoping they won't eat a bigger snail.

Alternatively, does anyone have any other suggestion for keeping algae down in the tank, without significantly increasing the bioload by adding another fish?
