Epiplatys dageti monroviae, the firemouth panchax, one of the few killies that do well in community tanks. If you can't find them at an LFS they're usually fairly inexpensive on Aquabid.

Laetacara curviceps are great snail eaters, leave plants alone & will even breed in a community tank. But for an infestation of MTS nothing beats assassin snails.
