How long will a Nerite snail not move?
Nerite snails’ sleep is confused with death because they can sleep for days and at any place in the aquarium. But you shouldn’t be very quick at declaring your snail dead if it doesn’t move for two to three days. A dead nerite snail shows many symptoms of not being alive, which don’t appear while sleeping.
How do you know when a snail is dying?
Smell the shell carefully. If the shell smells rotten or foul, the snail has died. Examine the water snail shell carefully. If the body of the snail is no longer inside the shell or if the snail hangs out of the shell and does not move, then the snail may have died.
Why is my snail not moving?
If your snail isn’t moving and remains stuck to the aquarium glass or decorations, it’s most likely sleeping, hibernating, or resting. A dead snail would merely fall off the glass and lay upside down on the substrate.
Why is my Nerite snail dead?
If you don’t provide food, such as sinking pellets and fresh vegetables, they will starve to death. Their inability to live lengthy lives or reproduce in freshwater is considered a plus by some hobbyists who want algae removal without introducing a permanent snail population to their tank.
