Yah, adding fish to fix a problem is not great unless you wanted the fish anyway but you are not really trading one problem for another as the loaches don't NEED snails to eat. You then have a troupe of loaches to care for, that's all.
Now that I think about it, I don't recall seeing any of my trumpet snails since adding the catfish (not corys but similar)... do corys and small cats eat small snails?
