I bought what i thought were mystery snails. I had a tank w no heater. My snails were active n happy. I put a heater in and one died n the other looks close to it. I took the other snail out n put it in cold water n it was fine again. The pet store ssid to re introduce it to the heat w a plastic bag. Sid that ...,snail doesn't like it. Taking her no out n putting her in cold water where she's happy. Is this normal or do I not have a mystery snail.

What do you mean by 'unhappy'? What kind of heater?
Aquatic 70 degree F. She won't come out. Just sits there n was floating which she never does. One already died. She was very active before

What else changed? Are you sure the heater is running properly? What else is in the tank and what temp was it before?

Unlikely this is a temperature only issue. This could have been a big change in water parameters, the snail could have been sick/diseased before you got it, etc.
