Remove the snails manually or try baiting them with lettuce and remove the lettuce when it's riddled with several snails.

I'm ready for the pressure.
The drama and the pleasure!
If there is one thing I want to see here, it's HUMOR.
I believe I can fly!
I believe I can touch the sky!
I think about it every night and day!
I stand in awe of my body.

though I dont usually suggest Oranda's for ponds, they do a good job of eating snails actually. I think Dojo loaches will as well and they will live in the colderwater environments. Otherwise a snailtrap is a good idea.

If you do put Orandas in, make sure you take them inside for winter otherwise they will die. Snails shouldn't be touch much of a problem, they filter your water but if you want them out then the only practical way of doing it is by hand, however they cant half grip onto the liner and often you only get the shell!
