It is a 15 gallon. Snails eat leftover foods and other garbage so they're a good addition to the tank, but you should control the population with clown loaches though.

You dont want to be putting clown loaches in such a small tank because they can grow to be 12" long .Go to your LFS and ask them for snail stop which worked for a my dad .

You can also try dropping a piece of cucumber or other vegetable in the tank at lights out. In the morning the piece is likely to be covered with snails. I prefer methods such as that to chemicals. The fish don't appreciate them very much.
