Snails are asexual. They don't need another snail to reproduce. Sometimes snails are just lazy and lay around for a while.

SmokeNLark, you are absolutely wrong. Apple snails are sexual. They require a male and a female to copulate. The females can however, store sperm for months and are able to produce several clutches of eggs after one mating.

Tiffany, your snail is really tired of constant sex. Separate her from the males before they kill her. I had two females that almost died from constant stress by the male which I had to push to another tank for several weeks until they recover.
