he could just be adjusting to the new water temp by laying around. The warm water will definitely help him out though

for that small of a tank that large of a Nerite snail is even too much. I looked up tiger snail, their actually just zebra nerite snails. I true tiger snail shouldn't be in the water. But for a one gallon you'd need a pretty small snail to not affect the ammonia in the water as much. With that big guy in there I would definitely say he's the cause for stress. They do bite tails when they get stressed. I would recommend bumping him up to bigger tank, or just removing the snail.

Nerite snails are the least bio-loading snails out there, but it's bio-load does grow with size. I would get the snail into a bigger tank, or put you betta in a different tank.

room temp (72.F) is probably the best temp for your fish :) usually their tail will heal in the right habitat
It could just be a defect from the container from the store bowls unless you breed it then i can not help with what might have gone wrong

no 72 is not the right temp. 78-82 is the correct temp. Where are you getting this information from Made2party?
