He is the center piece of my 55. I hate to see him go, so if I can find a steady supply of snails I will keep him lol.

well if that is your problem, it is a good thing you are close by.
I've got snails in several tanks. you should also get some blackworms and daphnia.
I've been planning to get a pea puffer but it is lower in my current priorities.
Aluka's idea works well also take the bigger snails out first.
