Clown loaches also eat snails!! The only snails I feed to my Clown Loaches are pond snails!!! I know that It Is mean, but they love them. (It makes me sad too) But thats the way things go. I do not give them to them on a regular basis, just as a treat once In a while. I try to give them frozen brine shrimp instead. Also a Clown Loach delicacy! I would never think of feeding my Apple snails or giant ramshorns to them!! It just shows you the importance of reasearch. You cant just go throwing species in the same tank willy nilly!!
