Do Otocinclus and snails compete?

Hello everyone,
just had a quick question as I see more and more snails appear in my new tank, I don't really mind them as long as they don't eat my plants or harm my fish, but I have 3 otocinclus in there and I was wondering if there's a chance they might get out-competed for algae by the snails and hence starve to death. Any comments would be greatly appreciated.

if you got algae eaters in tank you should be supplementing them with algae wafers or algae tablet food if you doing this snails are not going to make a whole lot of difference tho would keep numbers down during maintenance
