I have had good results baiting snails with sliced orange. The fish eat the same part we like, and the snails come to the rind. I have heard of other baits, too. Try all sorts of different fruits and vegetables. Lightly cook the vegetables, to the point that they sink, but not so mushy they fall apart in your tank.
Good fish food, and you may find a certain bait that attracts the snails you specifically want to remove.

If you want to try fish for snail control get smaller Loaches than Clowns, and always quarantine new fish. Most Loaches will eat snails, but if you are not so interested in getting any new fish, then it is better not to. Loaches are social fish, so if you decide to get any at all, plan on getting several.
