Just be sure not to sqash with the tip of your fingers. There is a disease that they can transmit to you if their shell cuts your skin. Use the tip of a spoon instead.

Um my kribs eat Mts snails. I wouldn't advise them for a planted tank though. Some people say they tear up the plants. Also I believe clown loaches have been known to eat snails also. But not for a 25gal IMO

I had a massive snail problem I found out from my lfs that Zebra Loaches (botia striata) eat snails and since i bought them i have not seen any alive snails since only empty shells but get at least 3 together

P.S I think they should be fine with shrimp but don't hold me to that

I would get 4-5 as long as your tank has the room for it. Also a 25 is the smallest tank I would put them in jmo

Dont over feed and remove any decaying/dying plant matter and you wont get overrun with snails.
