Does RCS eat snails??

Hi all.
I had thousands of ramshorn snails in my tank. I think I got them with some plants. I didn't now how to get rid of them until I got 10 RSC. Now, about 1.5 month later I have way less snails than I had before. So here is my question:
is it possible that RCS eat the snails or their eggs?
P.S. You can laugh if this question looks stupid :icon_bigg

I think maybe they help clean up after your feedings and reduce the population thru less food available.

they wont eat the snails but they would probably eat pond snail eggs. Ramshorn eggs are stuck to the wall and hard to get off.
and i agree with jrill. Shrimps are scavengers and now theyre competing with the snails for food so it lowers the snail population.

if you crash the snail, yes, RCS would eat it.
they won't hunt the live snail.
