apple snail predator?

Hi, i currently have an apple snail in my tank and i was wondering if i added a loach, would that pose a problem for the snail?

What kind of loach, and how big is the snail? Some loaches are more enthusiastic about eating snails than others. Also, most loaches prefer to be in groups so you'd want to add at least six of any schooling loach.

im not sure yet, i was thinking small loaches but not the chain loach. Also definatly no clown loach. Uh the snail is roughly an inch now. Will larger sized snails deter the loach? or does it make the snail seem like a bigger meal?
