you may want to flip them over so their hole thing is touching the gravel. They look like they have receded back into their shells alot. Good luck. Very nice

...

i thought i was going to have to bag them or something, but the guy said to just drop them in. i have read that the climate change of the water helps get them moving for a bit, and to be quite honest i have seen it work. i am not to sure if this stressed them out at all though? but they are up and runnin, and everybody seems fine.

Well i picked a couple up and let me say that these guys are awesome. i haven't been this excited about my tank since i set it up. it makes it seem more like a little slice of underwater life rather than just a fish tank.

make sure you have a top! LOL one members snail fell out and the cat got it I think. Cool snails, how big are they? you should take a picture near a dime, quarter or something for a size comparision.

This is one of the best parts about mystery snails. If they lay eggs for you, they are above the water line. Super easy to spot and dispose of or offer to send them out to someone.

And to share in the snail silliness...a shot of 3 of mine being strange. (Sorry it isn't the best quality)
