    Hey Kathy.

    It shouldn't be a problem. Here is the wkipedia link. And the excerpt "Although normally a freshwater snail, this species is very tolerant of brackish water, and has been recorded in waters with a salinity of 32.5 ppt(1,024 specific gravity salinity)."

    Hopefully that helps.
