I suggest repotting in soil for succulents and reduce watering. Remove the yellow leaves. Snake plants are usually pretty tough but will succumb to overwatering. Make sure the soil is dry between waterings. Also, even though they will tolerate low light, they do better with moderate light and may even flower.

Does that container have drainage holes? If not, you may want to consider one with drainage holes. Snake plant needs well-draining soil that is on the dry side.
