There are no Loaches suitable for a 10 gallon tank that are also good snail predators, and with fry in there...
Keep some Zebra Loaches in an appropriate tank (half a dozen in a 20 long or larger)
Rotate them through the 10 gallon in between fry rearing periods.
Rams horn snails are easy to pick out, and while you have the fry in the 10, harvest the snails and toss them in the Loach tank.
Clown Loaches can get a foot or more in length, and it is a chunky, plump fish mass. They are social, with half a dozen minimum. There is no way they are going to work in a tank smaller than 75 gallons, and even that is only good while they are juveniles. These are not fish you get 'cause you have a snail problem'.
These are fish you get because you like them.
