Sick snail?

He keeps rolling onto his shell. I keep fixing him so he's sitting right, but every time I look back into the tank, he's upside down again. What's wrong with him?

He's a zebra nerite snail. I don't know what's wrong with him. He keeps rolling onto his back, no matter what I do.

Is he still alive? My snails always right themselves, so i would recommend letting him be. if he doesn't move for several days, he might not be okay.

He's still alive because if I pick him up, he'll move around again, but he just rolls onto his shell shortly after. He's not dead (yet :( ), so I'm hoping there's some hope for him... I just don't know what to do, or what's even wrong with him. All I know is that he keeps rolling onto his shell and staying that way until I fix him.

not sure about nerites but trapdoor snails will roll onto their backs and have their fleshy parts sticking out into the water. Then a while later you will find them moving around the tank again.

Rabbit snails do too. its not something I've noticrd my nerites do, but unless he's staying tucked in his shell all the time, he's probably okay :)
