Only if you have a giant tank, clown loaches get big.
Trust me, assassin snails don't overpopulate the tank, and maybe the LFS will buy them back from you.

Yeah I just been researching and assassins are definitely the better option aren't they. Will I get away with just 2 to clear up a 30g tank?

Depends on how fast you want them out. I'd go with three. One for every ten gallons of water.

They don't bother anything but other snails.
They DO reproduce though, so check around your heater for the eggs. The eggs look like tiny pieces of square paper with a blob in the middle, and mine lay theirs stretched from the heater to the suction cup clamps that connect the heater to the wall.
