acclimating nerite snails

Hey all,
I'm getting 3 Nerite snails. They should be here today. They will be in 3 different tanks for algae clean up. How should I acclimate them when they get here and how will I know if they made the trip or not??..I know literally nothing about snails so any info on these guys and what to watch for would be greatly appreciated. Thanks a million.

i'm pretty sure that if you smell them that should tell you whether they're alive or not

i'd acclimate them just as you would any other fish aside from the very sensitive ones, i'd just dump a little water out and add more in every 5-10 minutes or so and go from there
