Sulawesi snails

My sulawesi snail won't come out of its shell?
I just got it yesterday for my betta.
It was out for a bit then went back in and hasn't been out since..

Probably adjusting. Did you acclimate it as you would a fish? I don't have experience with that type of snail but the snails I have, some have come out their shell & started exploring with minutes & others took a day or two. Some won't move around until after lights out.

I just got a few of these also...I am having the same issue. I acclimated them slowly (over 4 hours) and they won't come out...hope they are ok :(

My sisters sulwesi will occationally stay in its shell for days. As far as I know they don't really move much.
