Welcome to AquariumAdvice.com
Might want to look into a different snail species. Some species of turbo (Turbo fluctuosa
) sold in the trade do not acclimate well to the warmer temps we keep. Personally I have never had this issue but some seem to. Be sure your LFS
is actually labeling their snails correctly as well. A true Turban snail will have a rounded shell while an Astraea will have a pointed shell. Astraea's are part of the Turbinidae
family but are not deemed an actual "Turbo" snail.
Other likely candidates of good algae grazers are Margarita, Nerite & banded Trochus.
The main issue with invert death soon after adding is usually the length and spped in which they are acclimated. The more sensitive the invert, the more time must be taken to acclimate them. Snails are best conditioned via drip method for a few hours.
