Dead Nerite?

Slapp

Hello,

Yesterday, and the whole year before that my nerite snail has been a wonderful and very active member of various tanks of mine. But today he’s like this?
What’s wrong, did my old boy finally die?
He’s “new” to this tank, but it’s the same water as the tank he’s lived most of his life in.

Ph ~ 7
TDS 250-300
Ammonia 0 PPM
Nitrite 0 PPM
Nitrate 0 PPM

He’s in my shrimp tank, so there’s no copper or other invertebracide.

Did my old fella finally just kick the bucket? And also what is that pile of stuff around them?

Edit: Never mind it’s alive, just acting funny. Took it out and put it in a glass.

Snails have a habit of hibernating for a few days. If you see a snail that is not moving, pick it up and sniff it. If it does not stink, put it back in a spot you can easily observe. If it stays in the same spot for a couple of days, sniff it again. If it starts to stink, it is dead and should be removed so it does not contaminate the water.
