  1. Default Nerite snails dead?

    0 Not allowed!
    I just bought two zebra nerite snails yesterday from my LFS. Each one looked like their shell was only 3/4 developed. I acclimated them for about 30 minutes and put them in my 20 gallon FW tank As of this morning they have not moved at all from where I put them yesterday. They are not bobbing at at the surface as if they were dead. Help please.

    Snails may sit for hours at a time, not moving

    If their trapdoors are tightly shut, they should be fine

    Have you tried any sinking foods?

    Have you out them on their backs? Sometimes nerites have trouble righting themselves.
    A night is quite a long time to spend in a single spot, even for a snail. The best way to tell whether one is dead is to smell it. There is zero ambiguity. A dead snail will let you know it is dead.
