Clown loaches will not care what type of snail it is.If they can get it out of it's shell,,they will eat em.
Snail's should be fine without heater for a few day's.:cool:

I had some assasins ride in on a plant. I put them in a huge cup with clean water no heater and kept them there for a couple weeks before I gave them to my neighbors son who wanted them. Seemed fine with water changes daily.
Well never thought about that with Clown loaches. Now I know where my new snail baby boom in the 16g is headed hehe to the big tank.
