Welcome to the forum. I'm not exactly sure what you are asking, can you post a picture? Is it algae growing on their shells? You will need to make sure you are feeding the snails and shrimp since this is a new tank but not over feeding. Really snails and shrimp are very bad to add to a new tank they need a tank that is established at least a few months. Do you have fish in the tank also?

I'm not quite sure what is going on. Maybe your pH is too low? Or other parameters are off? I dunno. What is your pH? What is your ammonia, nitrite, and nitrate? Do you know your hardness?

Maybe with those numbers, someone can wager a better guess.
