Not to swipe the thread . . . but do SW snails make miraculous recoveries like FW apple snails? I've had apple snails that floated at the top of the tank for a week without moving (and not all sealed up--foot was loose) and then one morning . . . boom! crawling around eating like nobody's business. I kept thinking they were dead, but as there was no smell or evidence of decay I just waited (good thing, too). Do turbos, etc. pull that, too?

Nah...their shells are usualy to heavy to float..and they can be so fragile that they usually dont recover once they are headed down hill.
