Sorry just re-read your post, is it only snails that you have in the small tank?
If so you will have to feed, but change diet,, 1 feed bloddworm or live feed, next feed catfish pellets.
If so plenty of areation and filtration, even though this is a small tank it does not need a full waterchange every time as it needs cycling like any other tank, just do a 50% change once a week.
The snails go into shock the same as fish do, you said that you turn the heater off because it gets too hot,,,if there is a thermostat fitted on your heater turn it down as 85deg is way too hot, the glass is cooler than the water,,,hence the snail stays on the glass,, 75-78 is perfect
