if snaily, my big boy, climbs onto the glass he holds on for dear life. i'm scared to pull his shell too hard or drag him around by it too much. he sticks so hard it's like one of those industrial magnets. once i had to wait to clean the tank because he wouldn't come off. he makes such a tight seal that i can't slide anything under his foot either. is there an easier way to get him off?

Why do you want to get him out?
I always just lightly tapped their shells, and wiggled them a bit, they usually would let go.

Not following why you would need to pull him off. If you're wanting to move him to a different tank, just wait?
