Hi all. In my 55 gal. FOWLR I have a cleanup crew. One of the large snails was on his back. So I was told to turn him over because they cant .
This morning, on the back again ?? What do you think ???? Thanks again

I depends on the type of snail. Some can right themselves and sme have more difficulty. It is always good practice to flip them over.

Some people are like slinkies...they serve no real purpose yet can still bring a smile to your face when you push them down the stairs!:p
Have a great day! Brian

They might be falling off the glass and landing on their back.
