Are zebra nerites okay with a yoyo loach?

I have a yoyo loach, I think it is full grown, its about 5" long X1" tall. I was wondering if it would be okay to put a few zebra nerite snails with him. The snails are about dime size, I think they get bigger. I dont know if the loach will try to eat them or kill them, but they are too expensive to be a loach snack so I dont want to find out the hard way. I once tried to populate the tank with 50 malaysian trumpet snails thinking that they would reproduce faster than the loach could get them but they have been long extinct.

Simple answer is no. Yoyos crave for invertebrates and nobody in this category is an exception. Yoyos happen to be one of the most intelligent loaches yet and can pry the snails off rather easily. Even if they fail, they will harass the snails to death.

+1. Is there anything a loach likes more than escargot? I think not.
