75 gallon ,Finished cycle but turbos not doing well

75 gallon tank

Temp83--gravity 1.025---ph8.2---no2 0---ammonia 0---no3 o----

I started to have a diatom outbreak a few days ago. So yesterday i went and got a few turbos and a few hermits. Four of each.

I acclumated everything (On a Drip) The snails dont seem to be doing very well .They have hardly moved i even had to roll a couple of them back over. Any idea ?????? Thanks Dewey

The rolling over part will be a regular occurance. They usually dont fall off the glass unless they are being picked on. Hopefully your hermits wont decide your turbo's have a better house than they do and decide to evict the snail.
