Is there such thing as Shell Rot on snails?

We have about 5 or 6 snails that are snall and round and grey that were called "Tiger snails" from the LFS, two of them have completely lost there shells and are roaming slugs and one has his shell starting to peel away. Is this something that is normal? Should I be concerned that it is an infection in the water and if we add anything else it will infect it?

I never thought I'd be so concerned over a snail but hey, why not.

Thanks ahead of time!

Ok, re-editing now, is it possible to have slugs come with your live rock? reason I'm asking is these snails that I'm talking about, 1 died his shell is still at the bottom of the tank incase the hermits want to take it over, anyways, I count 5 still, so I have no idea where these slugs are coming from. Help this is really strange!
