Snails

We just added a few snails to our tank, and one by one, they seem to just stop sticking to things.  They have each died, seemingly peacefully, but we can't figure out why.  Shrimp, fish and snails all seem fine, water test came out great

We had 2 snails before the new ones, and one has died and one seems fine.  Everything else in the tank seems fine.  We're going to the saltwater store tomorrow to talk about.  We acclimated them in the bucket and added a scoop of tank water every 10 min for 1 hr 50 min.very strange

We still don't know what happened-the water tests are perfect, no phosphates, water temp is right, but everything else still seems fine.  They reported no issues with the other snails at the store

No, it's a new tank and all new set up in October 2022 and we use r.o. water/saltwater from our fish store, still everything else: fish, seastars, shrimp, and crabs all seem fine.  Maybe they were just a bad batch?  We got them bc our hair algae is getting out of hand.  We scrubbed a bunch off, and assuming everything else stays well, we're going to add an urchin to tackle the algae.
