Turbo snails escaping?!

So in the course of ten minutes I've discovered the same snail on the ledge of my tank. I have a lid on it but it managed to crawl up the filter intake tube and onto to ledge! Has this ever happened to anyone? Lol

My snails have gone out a little bit but nothing that much but if they know what's good for them and want to survive they will go back in

Check your water levels. Snails running out of water can be indication of water problem.

My snails always treat my tank like it is the last chopper out of Nam. They spend the daylight hours almost as far out of the water as they can and go to town at night. No clue why, just pretty common behavior IMO.

The first thing I did was check my water. All levels normal except the ph was a little low. My clowns are acting weird too though. They are just hanging out in the upper corner. I was gonna do a water change to play it safe but I'm out of water conditioner.

Clowns swimming at top could mean low oxygen. Do you have any powerhead breaking water surface.

Size of tank,filteration??
If possible post full tank shot

I would go and talk to ur LFS or local reef club.
Get water tested again at LFS ;
Raise Ph slowly.
Check- alk, calcium and magnesium.
Oh check salinity - often missed.

Inspect ur fish for any signs of diease.
