ahh!!! I feel so bad, I pulled a rock out of my aquarium to check for pest snails/eggs and I didn't realize my golden mystery snail was attached!!! She fell like 5 feet onto the concrete floor and made a nasty breaking sound. She has a curved crack along the bottom of her shell and I can see her skin through the little gap.

Do you guys think she could survive!? Or is she bound to die...?

well I ran out last night and bought some crazy glue, after I glued his shell I put him in a breeder with some food to be alone. He seemed to be doing better almost immediately, he popped on of his antennae out and was slowwwwly opening. This morning he was fully open and just sitting in the breeder so I released him back into the tank.

Thank you for your advice really it saved my snail! (so far so good atleast!)
