Those are Chinese Algae Eaters. AKA bad news. Each grow 11 inches long. Each will not eat algae as they get older and will want fish food more. And each wil get super aggressive and suck on any fish you try to put in there. I would highly suggest returning them.

What kind of pleco is it? Common pleco?

Is the tank cycled? If it is, how did you cycle it?

With the bioload you have currently, you have a waste factory in your tank, I'd suggest daily, especially if not cycled.

They'll eat snails, but once you're out of snails, you will have to feed them. Never get a fish for it to do a job for you. An easier way to get rid of snails is to simply get a piece of lettuce, put it under a cup, leave it overnight, wake up, turn over the cup, see all the snails on the lettuce, take the lettuce out, and dump it. Plus in a 20 gallon clown loaches get too big, almost a foot long, and need schools of 6+.

Not sure about the horse face, but from a quick Google search, around 8 inches. Not enough room in a 20L IMO.

Here is a good profile

No more plecos.. You cant get a
Clown loach because they get way to big for your tank and its already overstocked on the bottom as it is! Why dont you get some fish that stay at the top? Because the bottom is full.
