Dead Mexican Turbo Snail

Hi-
I had the unfortunate experience of loosing my MTS and was wondering (could not find anything online) how big do they grow?
I got it about 6 months ago. I am not sure if it died of natural causes or if it did not have enough food (it cleaned up my tank so well ...).
I have 10g FOWLR and the only other cleaning crew member is an Astraea snail.
I checked my water and everything was in check.
Thx

What was its shell like? Maybe a lack of calcium . Or did you use any meds with copper?

I would say not enough to eat in a 10g as they eat 8 times more than a normal turbo

don't really know but I used have one in 40 gal and would do laps of the tank all day plus eat some pellets that used to feed now and again for fish then one day just fell off glass and died, nothing was wrong as had normal turbo aswell and still got him now. Read aswell that need large tanks to live when mine died.
