Re dead fish

Testing kit not out of date.
No symptoms matching velvet (no symptoms at all).
Fish were 4 days in transit due to a postal delay but appeared to acclimate well. Could shipping trauma have caused delayed reaction?

Snails are fine - By the way, should I be feeding them until I get another fish? And would a month be long enough to wait?

Thanks, everyone, for your help.

Shipping trauma could have something to do with it, but I would imagine it would have to do with being in a little bag with higher ammonia levels and lower oxygen levels . That could cause gil damage, but with no signs of illness (rapid breathing), I'm not so sure.

Is there any chance it was contamination? Did you do any cleaning with aerosols or do any work in the tank where something might have been on your hands or arms?
