Gauging The Health Of Mystery Snails

Is there any way I can make sure my mystery snail is happy and healthy?

Right now, he doesn't look so good. He has holes in his shell, and his antennas are shorter than they should be. However, he acts perfectly normal and the rest of him looks fine.

What should I look for as an indicator of him doing well? Behavior wise or appearance wise?

(Bonus question: What pH should I keep him at?)

Many snails these days have adapted to the pH of our tap water, so pH is nothing to really worry about

Does your snail have calcium? Do you feed your snail foods that provide calcium? What is your hardness? A snail lacking calcium will have their shell dissolve

I've recently started providing calcium in the form of weekend feeders that advertise as being 30% calcium.
