Betta got sick after adding snails

I'm completely shocked by what just happened.

I got 2 snails to add to my 10 gallon tank and my betta has been in perfect health for the longest time. I've been keeping up with the water changes making sure nothing is out of order the only problem i've had as far as cleanliness is the usual algae hence why I got snails.

Either way there isn't even THAT MUCH algae to where it's painfully noticeable and I keep the water level up right.

I use prime water conditioner and that is it nothing else other than the bettafix i was recommended to make sure his fins don't get infected while healing from his last little sickly incident.

Well tonight I added 2 snails at around 9ish.

I just checked on them at 3am and my betta is OBVIOUSLY sick. with a tint of gold and he actually was scraping around on decor this time.

I'm assuming velvet but am not 100% sure and am not able to take vids or pics right now.

There is NO debris NO rotting food NOTHING out of the order other than I added those 2 snails so what in the world?!

How big were the snails? Are they both still in the tank? Did he possible eat one shell and all? What kind of snails were they? If you're not sure of species a description could help us identify.
