Exclamation Hello.... Pest Snail help please

Hello, I'm a bit of a newbie on fishtanks. I didn't know snail eggs were on the plant. I made a diy bottle trap to remove the snails. I have a 75 gallon tank, with swordtails that I am breeding. I do not want any snails. Is there another fish who is peaceful but will kill the snails but also accept fish flakes? I noticed them this morning, and I'm not sure how to kill them.

Clown Loaches eat snails & fish flakes, they're also quite peaceful. If I'm wrong, please correct me.

Question

Thank you Soarin, I went to my LFS and they said if I have a small community. (I got 3) they should be fine.. The snails seem to only be on the right side of my tank and near the filter. How will I know if and when my tank will have less or no snails.. On another note, my swordtail just gave birth and one fry is a great hider. Do you think it will be safe... I have lack of decorations and due to the snails I removed all live plants.
