Something Wrong With Snail?

Hello. So yesterday I thought my apple snail was dying. I've only had him for a few months and he lives with a betta, baby guppy, and a shrimp. Yesterday I cleaned out the tank they were in and he was just floating when I put him back in. I went out for awhile and when I came back he was just laying at the bottom, not out of his shell or anything. At first I thought he was dead but I put some food next to him and he slowly... like really slowly started coming out. I spooked him a couple times and so did my guppy and shrimp. I left him be for a few hours but he still hadn't moved. This morning when I woke up he was out of his shell some but in the same spot. I came home from work and still in the same spot. I poked him and he didn't budge. So I took him out of the tank, put him in a little container with a wafer in case he wasn't actually dead. I go to look at him and his bottom area is slowly moving but he's not really moving. Is he dying or what? ;.;

Here's a picture of what he looks like. He has been moving but its extremely slow and not like him. His head isn't even actually coming out of the shell and he's not eating the wafer it would seem. =/
