Snails snails snails!

Like several people on the boards, my 20 gal has been taken over by snails.. MTS for the most part, although today while doing a pwc and substrate (small smooth gravel) clean I thought I saw a tiny ramshorn also... Here is my question..

Are there any freshwater fish that stay smallish (again my tank is only 20 gal) that would prey on these snails? I know a clown loach would be a given but they get huge, so that is out of the question..

Any ideas? I will do the bait with the lettuce leaf thing if I have to, but I'd rather not have to...

thanks in advance,

Gina

Assassin snails are worth looking into. 2 should keep the population to a minimum. The only other thing I know of are puffers but they are too aggressive for a community tank.

However baiting them is plenty effective, especially for that size tank.
