Turbo snail die off

Hi guys


I bought a bunch of turbo snails as part of my clean up crew. Over the last couple of weeks I have had 3 die. Do they have a short life span? Is there anything I should watch out for?

Everything else in the tank is doing well and growing .
There was a slight Cyano bloom , gone now.
Using ro/di water
Water params are normal
SG 1.025
Temp did get a little higher the past couple days. ( 83 max )
Thanks

I think so Brain, but there's still a bug in there from last time.

Turbos are cooler water species and do not last long in the warmer water. 3 months is about average for mine and my tank stays between 78 and 80. They also have a problem turning over if they get knocked off and will simply lie on there backs and die and be eaten. If you see one fall or knock one off by accident you need to set it back on its right side.
