Nerite snails not moving

Wanda2

Hey guys I have 6 nerite snails that I got over 3 weeks now.. first day in 5 gallon tank they were all over the place.. now it’s been a little over 2 weeks and they haven’t moved.. water is fine.. check it all the time with my kit.. no chemicals in water at all.. I have had snails before, so this isn’t my first rodeo.. but I never had any of my snails not move for so long..also I did get them off eBay.. , but they looked really good when I got them and were packaged great. I want to put them in my 20 gallon with my guppies, but waiting till they perk up.. if they do... I added a couple of pictures so you can get a look at them.. they do not smell bad at all...Thanks!

If they don't smell and are not dead id put half in with guppies now and see if a change of water dose the trick

Probably not much food if you have 6 in a 5 gallon, so not much reason to move.

I put food in there and I put live plants that had algea in with them.. so there is food..the 5 gallon isn’t permanent for them.. just a quarantine tank
