That temperature would be fine, and that pH would be great. Do you know how hard the water is? Even in a pH that high, it might be a good idea to give him calcium supplements if there's not enough calcium in the water. His shell won't pit at that pH, but it can get very thin as it grows without proper calcium levels.
By veggies, I mean any sort of vegetables you'd eat. I feed my snails (and some of my fish) things like romaine lettuce, spinach, cucumbers, zucchini, squash, and even bell peppers. I feed mine raw, just using a plant weight or paperclip to weigh them down so the snails can get to them. Take any uneaten veggies out after 24 hours.
