    Default Weird snail behavior.

    I have found one of my 3 nerite snails in my peacock tank laying on the substrate... in the exact same spot.... twice now. Idk it just seems odd to me. He was right near a plastic plant towards the front of the tank. Could it be that he fell trying to get to the plant? Or do I have a possessed snail?

    Btw when hes not laying on the substrate he never sits still. Always up and down the glass and all over the ornaments.
    Coastie-to-be... hopefully.

    I personally would observe if it happens more than twice before determining a trend. Sometimes nerites rest like that. If the foot is still out and attached to something then that would be a possibility, if the operculum is closed then something is bothering your snail. Do your peacocks ever "play" with the nerites?

    Yeah he has been on his back both times but the foot was kind of sunken in, a bit like he was hiding. I had assumed it could be the peacocks pecking or something similar.
    Coastie-to-be... hopefully.
