turbo snails!

Over the weekend I bought a few Turbo Snails. They are pretty small and it seems like their having a hard time clinging to the glass. Is it because their little and with the circulation I have in the tank their being blown off the glass? Or is this normal for the smaller size snails? It seems like their cleaning my substrate though! I have a couple of larger Turbo's that seem to stick like glue to the glass. Any thoughts on this?

How long did you acclimate them for? So they are moving around....if so, just give them a few days, they should come around. It would take a very strong circulation to keep them off the glass. Try and pull one off sometime.
May just take a few days for them to discover that there is food on the glass.
