i didnt know we were talking about a tank that is full of water. regardless you should NEVER move a tank with water in it or even gravel, sand, rocks. The weight will damage the bottom seal of silicone and possibly cause it to leak.
As for weight though a refridgerator weights more then a tank. Well a fridge is on a smaller surface area then the tank fits.

I would try to find out the problem that killed the snail in the first place before wanting to quickly replace it.
This way the next snail additions last longer.

Have you used any medications on the tank recently? Is the tank cycled?

Tank is cycled .

I do use Melafix Daily since i added new fish. but i use correct ammount and it claims its extracted from Tea tree's.

I tested the water and everything.

Im not going to replace the snail anytime soon. im was just asking if anyone knew where to get them.

I did use root tabs which is the only thing that hasnt been constant the past two days. I Contacted the people who created the Tabs via Email, Asking them if its been tested with snails. Or if it could have killed snails.

I got your PMs. As I told you earlier, it is too coincidental for the ferts to immediately be the culprit for the snail's death. What brand of fertilizer did you use? What are the ingredients of this? Iron chloride is possibly one of them since you mentioned iron but if the fertilizer has EDTA and DPTA, then iron shouldn't be the issue as are other heavy metals because both the EDTA and DPTA serve as chelators being able to bind the heavy metals and somehow prevent precipitation and poisoning of the fish and even invertebrates themselves with the possible exception of copper. Perhaps your fertilizer has copper included? I don't know of any ferts that do though.

How old do you really think is the snail? You told me it has been over a year age already. If so, then your snail has actually approached old age already brought as well by the high temperature which you mentioned in my PMs is 77 degrees Fahrenheit. With snails, I'd keep the temperature at consistent 74 degrees Fahrenheit to avoid shorter lifespan.

If you really want these snails badly, PM msjinkzd of Aquariacentral.com. She has the best snails out there. I'd have given you some of mine but I don't live where you live. I'm from the other side of the world, a thousand miles away.

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.

Melafix should be fine. I have never heard of anyone using it and killing their inverts in the process. How often do you use root tabs?
