    Does anyone happen to know if baby mystery snails can dig themselves out if they get buried in sand from doing a stirring? Can't really find an answer to this...

    I don't think there's really a definitive answer. Although, snails IME are pretty darn hardy. They will pop up in the most questionable of places, in the weirdest water parameters. I think they will be fine, but what I read is putting lettuce in the top of the tank and keeping lights off will attract them, which I would guess is a good way to see if they survived or not over time. Hope this helps.
