    I bought a Nerite snail 4 days ago, he already ran away on the second day, wherever he are I wish him the best.

    Oh no! Well best wishes little guy. Hope he turns up. Gotta say those snails don't seem too bright. Gary has yet to figure out the spinach I put in there for him.

    Your snail may still be in the tank. I've got a Nerite and he vanishes for days at a time, then he'll be out for days. He digs into the gravel and buries himself half way or more, sometimes uprooting plants as he goes (I think he's eating roots and food that's worked its way down into the gravel.) What I'm saying is- be careful when moving decor and gravel, as he may still be in there.

    Well, snails do strange things. Glad he turned up. But I have read that snails leaving the tank are a cue to check your water quality.
