    This post nails it. basically the shell begins to turn an ash color from it's normal red, brown or blue and then the begin to wither away/die off.. I noticed it as soon as my ph dropped to 6.8.

    At ph 6 with a GH of 4 they just won't live very long. good luck

    Just buy some cheap plants from anyone on TPT and you'll get a ton of free snails to experiment with.
