    Unsticking snails

    Stupid question,

    What's the best way to remove an astrea from the glass? :P
    I'm moving the last of the rock/cleanup crew from my sump into my display tank and they don't want to let go! I'm not sure how tough these guys are, so I don't want to be pulling on them too hard. Any ideas?

    Thanks!

    As a4twenty mentions, slide them along the glass and pull gently. They'll let go.
