Yeaahhh.. smelling is a definite way of telling whether or not theyre alive... god... i had to clean out the dead ones at work... never again will i do that...

another thing i notice with dead snails, is that the FW snails tend to float when they're dead....

if your snails are just sitting on the bottom of the tank.. and not on the glass.. and they havent moved, then they're more than likely dead

Yeah, but how is that "same way"?

When I acclimated mine 4 months ago, it was successful and I wasn't even being too fancy. I sat the plastic bag on the water. Then 15 minutes later I added a cup of tank water in it.

15 minutes later, I removed half of the bag's water. Then replaced that same quantity with my tank water. 15 minutes later, I repeat the process. 15 minutes later I repeat the process again. Then I net out the snails (or whatever fish I bought) and let them in the tank. It may sound a bit too much work. But you have to realize that I was playing play station 2 in between the processes. So it wasn't much. It only took an hour. That's about 2 maps for me in SOCOM 2.

JG, I recently did a hyposalinity treatment on my tank because of ich from god knows where. It killed the snails. I took them out by net and....Wow, the stench spread all over my living room. It was the ultramagnus-bombardostink halitosis from hell!!
