I don't know a lot about the inner workings of snails yet, but if you think about it...fish need the proper water type to thrive, insides and all, so maybe even if the shells look fine, theymay have internal issues....sorry to speculate on your thread, but you got me thinking!
alternatively, did you purchase all the snails from the same source? Perhaps they had a sickly group.
I've got some research to do but i hope we can work together to figure out your snail problem!

Sorry about my delayed response. Been a crazy weekend with my baby's bday party. Anyway, ive gotten snails from a few different sources. They seem happy and healthy at first. Shells look good. They eat and mate. And then within about a month they just die. Posted via Mobile Device
