Make sure you water is slight basic (above 7). Acidic water(below 7) will eat away at the snail's shell and eventually kill it. Also, check the hardness/softness of your water. Snails need calcium to grow their shells. If your water is very soft, you should raise the gh (general hardness). This will add more calcium and magnesium in the water so the snail can thrive.
