red tail zebra loach

I just purchased 4 of the red tail zebra loach from a LFS. They were labaled as Botia but from this web page it looks like they are Schistura subfusca. The salesman said they would be good for eating snails. Is this true?? from what I have read so far it is the Botia loaches that eat snails. Did I buy the wrong kind of loach?

Thanks
Guy
