Tiger Nassarius snails...

I knew these guys like to burrow, but they've been burrowed since Sat night. I acclimated them, and they both immediately went under the sand. I do see their tubes sticking out of the sand, so I at least know where they are... Is this common for this amount of time? I figured I'd see them hunting around at some point since I added them...

Mine remain under the sand unless I feed the tank. They then rise out like zombies and search for pieces of shrimp.

Yep...and if you turn the light on in the middle of the night you might catch them cruising around.
