SNAILS and CLOWN LOACHES

Hi everyone. This is my first time in this forum. I have a 20 gallon community tank. Inhabitants consists of a guppies, mollies, bronze cory and red platy.

Recently after I added some aquatic plants, I have notice some snails present in the aquarium. I have wash the plants before planting them into the tank, but I guess the washing isn't enough.

I have read in many internet sites, that Clown Loaches can get rid of the unwanted snails.

Is Clown Loaches compatible with the other inhabitants of my community tank. And if so, how many Clown Loaches do you suggest I should get.

Thanks for your concern and reply.
