Dieing Turban Snails

Hello, my girlfriend has a four gallon tank and has had two turban snails, the first one died about a month ago, suspected to be dead from falling and landing on its back. However, I added one last night and she said this morning it is completly dead and lifeless. She also has a small hermit crab and a fire shrimp. Thanks for any help

Btw turbo snails can turn over when they are on there backs. Only other option might be the shrimps and other inverts could be having a snack while they are on there backs.

Thats what i was assuming, i was discounting the nitrates due tot he fact the hermit and shrimp were unaffected.

Some inverts are more sensitive to nitrates then others. So don't count out the nitrates.
