Yep I have pond snails to from my plants. I do think most of us fear they will get out control and we will get to many in our tanks , I know I did when I first had them. What I do now is when I do my water changes I take out a few out and try not to worry so much about it...lol That seems to have kept them under control and also try and make sure your fish eat the pellets you give them and take out any that are not eaten and I feed my guy one at a time to make sure he eats it before he gets another one. The reason for this is so there are no leftovers for the snails to eat.
You could try the trick I have heard of, take a clean soap free jar and put a piece of some veggie inside it like and place it in the tank overnight and the next morning take it out and there should be lots of snails in the jar eating the veggie.
