Snails (20) dying

Ok, this is very depressing. During acclimation of 4 hours using the drip method they are fine. No issues at all -- The water more than triples -- still no issue. A soon as I put em in the tank (155 gallon, 2 months old, 3 tangs, 2 clowns, 250lbs live rock, all water related tests are fine) They DIE within an hour... This is the 2nd batch I lost... lots of 10

Any Ideas??? arggggghhhhh

What is the ammonia, nitrite, and nitrate levels in the tank? Any copper meds used in the tank?

Any brass fittings? Brass has copper in it.

See if you can get your water tested for copper. Maybe your tank got contaminated some how.

Are you sure they are dead? It is not uncommon for them to lay motionless for a few hours to a few days before they start moving around.

Yeah I'm pretty sure they're dead. When i put em in the tank there is plenty of movement. It usually takes about 30 minutes and they settle. Over the next hour or so I watch come detached (glass or lr)and usually fall upside down to the bottom of the tank and stay that way for days. 3 days later I take em out of the tank... They smell really bad

Yep that's dead.

What is the salinity and what is the PH?
