New Nerite won't leave his corner or eat
So I've had this new little Nerite snail named Vern for about a week. When i first put him in the tank, he meandered around the bottom a little bit (freaking Franky out lookin like a moving rock haha), but then he made his way over to the front right corner of the tank and crawled up onto the glass. I could see his little mouth moving, which i hope means that he's eating invisible algae off the glass or something.
But he hasn't eaten any of the stuff i've put in the tank for him. I tried an algae pellet and a piece of kale, and he didn't touch either of those. He also hasn't moved from that corner of the tank since he went over there the first day. You'd think that he would run out of algae in that spot and move on, wouldn't you? But he just crawls up to the surface of the water, then down to the gravel, then up again.
Should I be trying different things to feed him? Take him out and put him right on top of a pellet in a cup of water or something? Should i be moving him around the tank? Sticking him on the other side or setting him on a plant? Advice!
