Snail Acclimation

are there any special rules for acclimating snails? I got my first turbo snail today, drip acclimated him for over an hour and i'm pretty sure he died putting him in the tank. (he hasnt moved in over six hours)

I float the bag and then drip them in. I even put a tiny bit of a fluke tab and a powerhead in the drip bucket.
How did the turbo do btw?

Re: Snail Acclimation

It was the strangest thing! I was 100% sure the snail was dead but that night, (after sitting in the tank for hours) his little foot came out of the shell and he was climbing all over the tank. I guess the dark gave him the confidence to come out and move.
