Do turbo snails right themselves?

I started picking up the CUC. So far I have 5 Nassarius, 10 Turbo's, 10 Red tip Hermits and 2 Emerald crabs. I notice the Turbos seem to wind up on their shells and I have been righting them, is it necessary or do they right themselves? On another note, I didn't think the CUC would be so interesting.

I only have one turbo so I'm not to similiar with them. My nerites seem to need some help when I first drop them into the tank. After that they seem okay.

I would right them if you see them on the side. I imagine that it is hard for them to do.

I think the waves and currents are a lot more then what we can mimic in our AQ.

I keep forgetting about that mother nature thing. My Bad. Thanks TC. If they keep flipping over I'm going to put numbers on them and play lotto at the end of the week on the accumulative times per number, you never know maybe I'll hit something.

Here is another question along the same lines. why do some of my turbos crawl all the way up the glass so that they are half in and half out of the water. should i knock them back down?
