Loaches and Small Tetras

Hello All,

I am intrested in getting some small loaches to help control snails in my 30 gallon long planted tank. Currently the tank contains various Tetra,Rasbora and Lampeye species, an upside down catfish and three Green corys. I am considering Zebra or Dwarf Loaches because of their smaller size. Would they be ok with smaller Tetras and Rasboras. Some of the fish I have are about an inch. Would they be territorial towards my catfish? Also does anyone know of any other smaller loach species that would be peacefull, eat snails and fit comfortably into my community tank.

Thanks in advance,

Keith
