Dead Nerite Snail?

375 2
I've had nerite snails for a few weeks now. I had four in my tank. A couple days ago, one died. The ammonia and nitrites were at 0, nitrates at 5. My other snails and my betta are all fine. I think it might have been old age, since he was always the biggest and slowest, but I'm not sure. Any other possibilities?

What are your other water parameters? pH? kh? gH? Temperature?

How long has the tank been cycled? How was it cycled? Have you used any medications or other treatments in the tank?

You mentioned Assassin Snails in another thread. Do you have Assassins in the tank?
