Could it be laying eggs or something? I've never heard of mystery snails burrowing but then again, I've never kept one so I'm not expert.

that's what I've wondered. I did find what looks like a little shell... but it hasn't moved so I don't know

Maybe it's looking for food in the substrate? Aren't mystery snails kind of like scavengers?

that's just it, the other two cling to the sides of the tank and the plants, this one is just odd

Maybe it's sick and dying? Like how cats like to hide under furniture when they're sick? Maybe this one is trying to hide?

It isn't just cats. All animals hide when they're dying. I, sadly, have....firsthand experience. And I finally found where all the snails are. I was search for Tingle( found him underneath the driftwood) and from above, I saw literally 4 HUGE eggsacks hiddened in the part of the driftwood I couldn't see.

You mean your pond snails? You're going to have a lot of snails, JimJam.
