So, my gold snail (Garry) crawls over everything. all of the plants and the castle decor (I got it the other day on clearence from 14 bucks to 3.50$) and everyone loves it.
So when I occasionally look into the tank, I see my gold snail on the highest part of the castle, gripping so that the filter doesn't blow him off, but yet he doesn't move.
I continue to watch, and it sorta looks like a person climbing down the mountain in heavy winds.
Another thing Garry does is climb on the thinner fake plants, and even when a stem starts to tip, he just uses it to get to the next one.
As for Jerry (Black mystery snail) he is bigger than Garry and is a floater. (meaning that if he's inside the shell at the top he just floats.)
So, I look into the tank, and Jerry is right near the filter, just floating, then the current pushes him down, then he floats back up. Meanwhile I'm hoping a decoration catches him but it kept happening.
Finally, he lands safely, but now he's just climbing to the top again!
Snails are fun.
