welcome to AA,how big is th tank?danios should be in a 20 galllon tank(at least),and loaches like 4 or more. the snail infestation is caused by excess food,try feeding less.

The best way to remove snails is to get some lettuce in the bottom of the tank and put a little gravel in the center of it to hold it down when u go to bed and in the morning remove it it should be covered with snails

Water changes every week will help and also put some poly fill u know the stuff from walmart to stuff toy animals in the filter make sure it doesn't have fire retardants or any anti-mildew stuff on it because it can be bad for the fish change this every week and it will cut down on the color
