Snail overload - which loach?

One of my little tanks has a massive snail overload, I don't want to add anything to upset the balance so i'm opting for a fishy solution... I've never really noticed any of the loaches i've kept eating snails to any extent so i'm wondering which botia other people have found are good at clearing the little beggars?

Any other fish good at clearing snails? Talking catfish perhaps (doradidae (sp)?), there's a spotted one at one of my LFS for £3.99 which is marked as reaching 5" or so and the store says they love snails...
