I got a cute little black mystery snail with a brown, black, and gold striped shell yesrtarday. He of course was slow to get out and move about, and I did something stupid when I got him, I put him in without floating the bag so he could get used to the temp. He was okay though, and eventually moved over to eat a piece of lettuce I put in there. Then when I turned the lights out at night he began to move around the tank and up the walls.
Today, I found him over on one side of the tank, with his door closed.
Does this mean he is stressed or sleeping?
I checked on him later and he was partly out, but he hasn't moved in that positiion since then. It's evening now.
Is he just sleeping alot?
I tried moving him around and he didn't do anything....
This is my first time owning a Mystery snail.
Do you think maybe my female betta is stressing him out while I am not there looking? When I see her she ignores him and just swims up to stare at him every now and then. The water quality is good, and so is the temperature.
At the store, the snail was moving along the wall with all lights on, but once the worker got him out of the tank, he closed up and wouldn't move for a long time.
I'm just worried because I do know bettas can pick on them and because of me being stupid, so I am just trying to figure out if this is normal or not.
He hasn't eaten anything today, I put a piece of celery in there too.
