    Hello,

    I was wondering what this is. I think it is the siphon but I wanted to make sure. I also was wondering why they might be doing this. It is just this one mystery snail.

    Thanks,
    Jess

    It is a siphon. He is breathing. If you watch you may see him taking a breath!

    It’s basicaly a snorkel which can help the snail breathe if the oxygen levels are too low (check your parameters) or if the snail was stuck in mud then it could use its siphon

    They regularly breath using the siphon, it's no cause for concern. He'd just rather reach that go up the extra inch or so.
