The oppossum snail?

Recommended Posts


I bought an astraea snail a couple of weeks ago. It was doing great the first few days, but one morning I found it on its back and I thought it was for sure dead. I left it in the back so that my crabs could take the shell. But today! My urchin picked it up and the snail is still alive, but I know that it has not moved from the spot in the back since I left it there. 


I have other snails/inverts in the tank that have always done fine. What would cause the snail to just chill out for 2 weeks?
