Do kuhli loaches eat snails

I put in 2 kuhli loaches a week ago and Ive noticed 2 dead snails since then. Ive had black kuhli loaches for months and they havent killed any.

Kuhlis aren't known to be snail eaters. That being said, kuhlis are loaches, and loaches love snails, so if the snails were small enough (and not MTS-that would be a tough snail for a kuhli to get into) I'd think they'd eat them no problem. Are you seeing two empty shells, or shells with dead snails inside??

If you don't stand up for something you'll fall for anything...
