How do they do with trophs? Will they eat the fry that are spit out in the tank?

Had to move one into the tank to try to get the snails down!

Don't think the will do much for snails but will help with the Tropheus population.....fry eater.

I disagree a little here. The petricola do help with the snail population. Don't get me wrong though - they are no clown loach, but they do cut the snail population down as long as it is not an infestation.

I believe they do eat fry also but I don't think they are as strong a predator as syno multis.
