    Default Snail goo...

    I noticed that one of my mystery snails had been depositing some white "goo" on the glass yesterday. It just kinda stayed there for a while and then some of it was gone a little while later. I have the snails for a while now and that's the first time I've seen that.

    Anyone know what that might be?

    It's right below the water line. The snail's been at the right below the water line in the exact same spot for about 3 days now. I've never seen that stuff before and they've been all over my tank for the past month or so.

    I don't think I've ever seen them out of the water. Can they survive long term out of the water?
