What kinds of fish eat snails?

I've read that YoYo Loaches like to eat snails, my LFS doesn't have any. Nor does PetsMart locally. What other kinds of fish find snails delicious? I have a bunch for them to feast on! Thanks

YoYos are your best bet if you can find them. Puffers also, but you have to be careful who you house them with.

What other fish are in the tank, and what size tank is it?

For smaller tanks, yoyo loaches are excellent. For big tanks clown loaches are great.

My rosey barb once killed an apple snail on its own.

My kribs enjoy dining on snails. I was in the middle of a medium sized outbreak when I introduced the kribs, and they cleaned up all the snails, fast!

Great, thanks. To answer the first question, it's a 29 gal tank with 6 small Tiger Barbs (<1 inch) 1 medium Tiger Barb and an algae eater. I'm slowly restocking after a deadly bout of Ich.
