Triggers an snails

How many people here keep their triggers with snail and hermits? I kind of need some ideas as too how many people keep them with snails successfully. I am planning a 75 gallon and I am looking at the bursa trigger.

I tried large snails with a dog puffer once. Worked ok but he did go after the small ones. It will depend on the agressiveness of the trigger. Most likely he will eat them. Maybe not immediately but over time.

*180 gal Display, 100 gal basement sump, 33 gal refugium, 3x250 MH, 2x160 VHO actinics, zoos, some softies, LPS & lots of acros and other SPS.
*100 gal prop tank plumbed into main system w/ 2x96 PC lights and 1x150 MH,

Triggers and inverts generally do not do well together...

I have only heard of long spined urchins for algae cleanup in a trigger tank. None of our snails and crabs ever survived more than a few days even with feeding the triggers well.
Good luck! Kat
