Explosion of ramshorn snails

Well This morning awoke to yet another explosion of ramshorn snails in my 29G. I had this happen once before and manually picked out most all of them. Must have missed some or they laid eggs before I could rid them. Anyway, I am wondering what can help keep the population under control? Is it that I might be overfeeding and that is why it exploded again or? I've head of loaches but really hadn't planned on adding a loach. I do however plan to add a pair of GBR's. I've heard they might eat baby snails??

Also, say hello to Mr. Gold Nugget!
