Loaches and Snails

So, I am debating keeping snails, however, I currently keep two clown loaches. Will they eat larger snails (1/2" and larger)? Or just the eggs and babies?

also, how are they with MTS?

I have been informed (I had the same question some time ago) that Clown loaches will eat even larger Apple snails. It may not happen until the Clowns get bigger it will probably happen.
They will also eat young MTS but can't usually get through the hard shell of adult MTS.
Here's a great site on snails:http://applesnail.net/. Go into their Search engine and type in "clown". Find the sticky on "Clown loaches and snails" and you will see a picture of what can happen when they are together.
