A couple top reasons snails die: lack of food or fish medications being used in the tank. Any medication with copper is toxic to snails. The only thing you should be adding to the tank is a good quality water conditioner to remove chlorine and chloramines from your tap water. Also snails have to be fed separately from fish. Fish food leftovers arent generally enough to keep them well fed. They make algae wafers premade that are a good option. Also some raw veggies like zucchini and cucumber work well. Just weigh down a slice in the tank and remove it when it starts going soft.

Also there is the chance your tank is very overstocked and cant support the snail. So if you put down the tank size, what is in it, what kind of filtration you have, and your waterchange schedule I can help you out.
