    Snails do that sometimes, mine will hang out up there for a few days and then go back down.

    Yes, and unfortunately I don't have my water parameters.

    Nerites do that? My apples are almost always at the top, but never heard of Nerites doing that.

    Mine does it all the time. It seems like he moves around a lot in the tank and then comes up to restart the top.

    Some snails do like to climb to the top, but if they constantly stay up top it can be a sign of bad water quality.
