Turbo Snail Feeding Habits Please Help Newbie Here

I have a Turbo Snail that can be found sucking on the glass of my Saltwater Aquarium. He is usually pretty active when I first introduced him to the tank about 2 weeks ago but now he has a steady habit of staying in on spot for long period of time simetimes day without me noticing him coming our of his shell to suck on the glass. Should I be worried? Is their anything I can do to make sure he does not starve or isn't sick? Please help!

He's probably OK, they do that sometime. If he is sick, you will find him on the sand on his back.

Turbos feed on algae and unfortunately do not do very well in our tanks. Good luck!
