Snail smells like rotten eggs?

I bought an aquarium snail a few days ago and Im not even sure if they thing is alive. It used to sit at the bottom barely moving then it floated to the top.

I heard if they smell really bad they might be dead?
I acclimated the snail properly. He wasnt really moving that much at the store either. :/

If it smells like rotten eggs I'd say its dead. Mine that are alive & healthy don't smell; I just checked to make sure.

I'm sorry but yes they do smell when they die. Sometimes if your animal dies with a period of time after the purchase they will give you a refund or replace with another snail. You might want to check that out.

Unfortunately, it was probably a problem from the handling at the store level. They don't take care of things very well. I bought 2 nerites and one died pretty quick.
