You're snail is normal. They move around for a while & then rest sometimes not moving for long periods of time such as in days. If you think he's dead when he hasn't moved in a while, pick him up & sniff him, you'll know instantly if he's dead. . . . it's a HORRIBLE smell or he'll come out of his shell which is also nasty. Make sure you're providing him a calcium source to strengthen his shell.

I put him in a cup floating in the tank last night just to make sure he wasn't going to die. This morning the food I left in there for him was gone (which Sebastian was mad he couldnt get to the food, ha) and he was out and moving around! :D I put him back in the tank before I left for work. :)

I read to put cuttle bone in the tank. Is that good, or should I use something else?

Cuttle bone apparently works but you can do it with food such as blanched kale, cucumber, etc. I feed veggies once or twice a week & every couple of weeks I add liquid calcium to the tanks.

He's not dead if he's closed tight. I found mine floating and though for sure he was dead. I grabbed him and a bubble come out kinda like a fart then he sank back down then came out of his shell.
