Do you have live rock, live sand in the tank? Have you cycled it? What are your water parameters?

Sorry for all the questions but they are required to offer help.

Live sand yes live rock not yet. Cycled yes growing algae yes. Had water test at pet store everything was in the good. Salt level is at 1.018-1.019 on the hydrometer. Anything I forgot just ask. My starfish and crabs and other fish are doing fine I think.

Snail do not move around all day. You may see them run around for a bit, then just sit the rest of the day. Dropping your temp would all be dependent on which Snail you have, as some do require lower temps. But 76-78 would be fine. Also, Calcium levels are important for inverts with shells, this should be kept around 420-480. Salinity a little onthe low side also, should be kept between 1.023-1.025 for the inverts.
