Bladder snail's shell turned white than died.

Anyone know why this could be? I've also noticed a few of my bladder snails have transparent shells.

ammonia/nitrite 0
nitrate 20ish
ph 7.4ish
kh 4
gh haven't checked since i moved them into the bigger tank but it was 7
tds 250ish
temp 72-75
diy co2 & flourish dosing schedule minus nitrogen
um dunno what other info will be helpful their tankmates are horned and zebra nerite snails, possibly mini ramshorn, i'm not sure..i have seen these things that look like worms curled into a spiral but with round kind of flat transparent shells, very small about the size of an adult bladder. i kill them when I see them and I've only seen three so far so i don't know.. all the snails seem fine except the bladder snails

Another snail of the same size just died...Maybe they are just old? They only hatched in November though..
