    Nerite snails

    I keep having to save my nerite snails from dying a slow death when they get themselves tipped on their back. Are they able to right themselves eventually or will I have to keep saving them? I had to save two of them this morning..lol

    I find that I pretty much have to save all of my snails (except for the stromatella's) from this predicament....would be curious to know how long they could survive on their backs.
    35Gal mixed Reef with light fish load. 250W MH, Jebo Skimmer,

    100Gal FOWLR- Heavy fish load and a few soft corals.

    Interesting that they don't have some sort of survival mechanism for this!

    Snails don't climb glass in the wild...

    That and the random movement of the ocean helps them.
