Turbo Snail

Bought a turbo snail yesterday for my 25 G nano
drip acclimatized for about 1 hour then put in tank
and it has not moved since I put it in done all the usual
tests and all parameters seem ok.

Any advice would be appreciated

I drip acclimate my inverts for a solid 2 hours then put the bag in my sump for 15 mins to adjust the temp every time. It may be longer than needed but for me the time is worth it...

I have had some snails not move for up to 2 days sometimes. Give it another day and then check it.

i don't drip snails. i just toss them in. i don't think i've ever lost a single one this way. i agree on the fact that it might not move for a couple days, but be perfectly fine. i've seen this plenty of times.
