Cold Water Snail Eater

Hi all, I have a coldwater pond & unfortunately missed a couple of snails in some amazon sword plants put in recently & now have a major snail infestation. I have bristlenose in there & kH medication kills them if I use a doseage strong enough to kill the snails. The pond is 3metres by 2metres, (depth 600mm at shallowest) with lots of hiding spots so catching the bristlenose isn't an option without draining. I have been told some loaches will eat snails, I know clowns do, but the pond water temp will be under 15Celcius for next 6 mths so it's too cold for them. Can anyone suggest a loach species that can help me?
Thanks in advance all!
