Ive had this mexican turbo snail for 1,5 months now, and until a week ago it has been all over the place constantly on the move to eat. However for the past week it has barely been moving, maybe a few inches every day. It still reacts when its touched but could it be dying?
Hermit crabs, cleaner shrimp, fish and other snails are doing fine.

ammonia, nitrites and nitrates are at 0. Im currently having a diatom bloom in my 2,5 month old tank.

Snails are just weird like this sometimes. Just keep checking it though to make sure it's not dead.

FWIW I had the same thing happen to a Margarita snail recently. This thing was just lifeless so I picked it up and threw it in my other tank without acclimating it at all. Within 10 minutes or so it was on the move again.
