They're kinda like catfish, except they evolved from the same group of fish as goldfish, barbs, etc; they're cypriniformes. They're a diverse group of fish but one group in particular, family Botiidae, have pointy snouts and love to eat snails! They're my favorite group of fish! But the smallest tank size for any loach is 10 gallons (most require at least 30), so I can see why you haven't had them.

Also can kill Mystery (have heard even adults) and any other snails you like in the tank as well.

They definitely kill the good snails too.

A loach..yuk.lol...Assassin snail would have killed my baby mystery snails at the time. So that wasn't a option. But I no longer have a single brown snail in any of my tanks. I just need plants really bad. Ones that I can afford and if you go to snails I just posted the picture of my little shrimp on the back of my medium Golden Mystery snail. They're both upside-down it's not the picture. But my shrimp lost all his friends and is now looking to any tank mate to play with. So I'm really looking for shrimp too..if anyone sees anything PLEASE let me know. I've contacted all the classified ads and nobody has anything.
It's just sad for the little guy. He's loved to run around with his friends. A snail moves fast but not even close to how fast a shrimp is...
Thank you all for great responses. I love talking to fish people. My friends don't understand it at all so I can't talk to them. .lol..

I'm happy to get you started. But after a while you may need better advice. But I only know freshwater Nano living aquariums. Which is everything is living from plants to trees to fish,snails and shrimp.
But I have all sorts of stuff to help you start a small tank. If you need anything.
Nice to have you join..
Michele

Voted! I didn't realize mystery snails could come in that range of colours!

Also welcome to the AA forum
