I think at some point they get too large and heavy for the surface tension to hold :D your mystery snail looks lovely, I can totally imagine sticking a pellet in its foot when it comes up to the surface like that!
Mystery snails are one of the snails I never owned XD they get a bit too big for any of my tanks :P

That tank is gorgeous! Emersed tanks always look so intriguing.

haha, I think they're trying to nom on the surface protein... which suits me just fine as they do a good job keeping it sparkling ^_^
seeing them upside down AND blown around by the current really cracks me up though :P I took this vid the other day of my shrimps. You can see the snails travelling backwards and in circles around the surface
