I have a bunch of snails (MTS, ramshorn, Mystery, Pond) and ghost shrimp, the 8 kuhli loaches and 9 minnow don't mess with any of them (neither the fish nor snails). I have a huge ramshorn population (which I like), my kuhlis don't eat snails and even if they did, ramshorns grow so fast and to be so big even my huge goldfish can't eat them (despite trying, they spit them out the first few times, then stopped trying).

pangio loaches usually leave snails alone. Even the smallest snails they don't go after. As for cherry shrimp, lots of folks have kept kuhlis with them in the past and haven't had issues. Now I won't say that they won't snag the occasional baby cherry shrimp. But subadults/adults should be fine with them

To get rid of your snail issue, assassin snails would probably be your best bet
