Have your had the tank for 5 days all together, or do you just start stocking 5 days ago? I don't know if an ammonia spike can cause your problem, but if your tank was not previously cycled before adding creatures, you'll hit this pitfall either way. If you're not familiar with the nitrogen cycle, you can read here:

But maybe someone else can chime in on if its cycle related, I dunno.

I don't know. The pH might be a little low for snails, most need a basic pH to maintain their shells. I def wouldn't let the pH fall any lower. But other than that, I don't know. I don't think it would hurt to do a 50% water change, making sure that temp and pH of the new water matches the tank water and using a good water conditioner. Yanno, just in case its an ammonia spike.

Other than that, maybe someone else will have a guess as to what's going on with your snails.
