Floating ramshorn snail day 7

Katie183

I’m just started my first walstad method tank. All my levels are perfect and I have two ramshorn snails, a bladder snail and a mystery snail.
The first day I put my snails in, my big ramshorn snail stayed on the floor without moving and the next day floated to the top. It’s now day 7 and it still hasn’t moved however it’s not hanging out of its shell. My small ramshorn snail and mystery snail aren’t very active either but moves around occasionally. My bladder snail is very active. My question is why is my ramshorn snail just floating after 7 days ?

temp - 24c
ph 7.4-7.6

My guess is the snail is dead, give it a poke just to be sure and if it doesn't react take it out quickly, dead snails can be ammonia bombs especially in small tanks.
