Another Snail Issue

Here we go again guys and gals another snail issue or actually a question.
Now that my snails are alive, they are very lethargic and don't move too often. They lay on the bottom of the tank with all their business hanging out! (usually upside down or leaning to the side)
My tangs (3 yellows) pick at em till they retract into their shell.
Is this type of behavior normal? Should I keep the water at a certain temp?

Some snails cannot right themselves when they fall of, and those same snails have a hard time staying attatched to the rock. My first thought is you need some different types of snails. I like cerriths, nerites, nassarius and trochus.
