Turbo Snails stuck together??

I bought 6 Turbo Snails today and acclimated them to my recently cycled 150 gallon along with 2 True Perculas. My question is the turbos were stuck together when I took them out of the bag and they are still all stuck together. Is this normal? Should I try to separate them? Or should I give them a few days?

You could separate them if you want, but may be less stressing for them to just leave them be and give them some time to adjust. Snails always stick to each other. Funny when sometimes a smaller one will ride on the back of another across the tank...as if it were a bus...LOL.

I agree with TCT. Normal. Mine love to crawl over each other.

I just added 12 the other day. 6 of them were piggybacking for over a day. Quite a sight, and very normal. Let them be, they will do fine.
