Snail eating fish

Hi guys

My friends got a 4ft tank and all off a sudden she's over run with hundreds of small snails, what fish could she get to help clear them up?

Yoyo & Zebra loaches will include snails as part of their diet, not knowing her stocking levels i would probably go for the zebra as they are relatively small & prefer to be kept in groups. Cutting down on feeding will also help as well, as any excess food will boost the snail population.
