I would dump the water and start over. Used Distilled Water, and buy "Marine Grade" Sea Salt, which can be found at your Local Pet Store. I use "Instant Ocean" myself, but Red Sea and others make very similiar products.
Not to be a wiseguy, but "1 gallon water , 19 teaspoons Sea Salt, 4 teaspoons Epsom salt and 2 teaspoons baking soda" sounds like a recipe for snail soup, not a snail tank...
The salt mixes we buy at our Local Pet stores are made for this application, running a marine tank. Read the "Starting and Maintaning a Saltwater Aquarium" forum on this site, that will be a great help for you...
