It looks like a couple of them are totally out of there shell. Little pieces of meat.


Also I got a dead hermit out of shell.

Does not sound good....the snails may be a lost cause. Remove any "meat" you see ASAP.

I know you qt tank is full. Maybe you can take a bucket of tank water and put the snails in it for now with an airstone or small ph until you are sure.

Ya, thats what I was thinking.

I will put them in a bucket to make sure.

How long do I have before they foul the tank?

If they are dead- they are fouling the tank, especially when considering that they were dead before you added them judging by your comments. Remove them ASAP.

Sounds like if you're worried, a water change is in order. Perhaps a decent size one since they were in the tank overnight.

Test the params and decide from there if you need another one the next day or not. Do what you can, but don't change things too quickly unless you have a reason to.
