Platanna in my pond

Platanna

Description:

I am fairly sure that this is a Platanna that I found in my pool
I put her in our fish pond
problem is there is not much to eat there and she doesn't get out, except once when she went back to the pool
she was nibbling on the fishes fins
Now I am feeding her fish pellet food along with the fish
I need to know if this is ok for her to eat or if I should try something different
any ideas?
I only want what is best for her
I am not keeping her confined
she is free to leave the garden but I don't like her in the pool because of the chemicals
