Hello everyone !!!
I recently got a new golden apple snail and for some reason, it only seems to come out about a quarter to half way but not fullu ? Is it shock ? Or does it just need time to get used to itís tank. I just wanna be sure itís okay.

Welcome Zenraika and new apple snail!

What are the water parameters and the temperature?


pH - important as well

other things like
general hardness / GH
Calcium / KH / Alkalinity


How long has your tank been running?

Are you familiar with the nitrification cycle?

A great bunch of information about aquarium keeping / link is located in the signature of my post. Check it out.

A first suggestion would be to do a water change of about 40-50% and see if the snail gets more active.
New to FW fish? First tank in a long time or EVER??? Need some info on keeping fish?
