turbo snails

I got 10 turbo snails about a week ago and they look like they are all dead. What could have happened? I can't figure it out. I tested the water and everything is good and my fish are fine.

Inverts need a more prolonged acclimation. Either by drip acclimation or adding about 1/2 cup of tank water every 20 mins for about 3 hrs.
