    How long after receiving new snails should they be moving around? Thursday night I received an order of cerith and nass snails. I read that the cerith may be dormant for up to 3 days but a lot of the nass snails arent moving yet either.

    Pull them out, and you will know in less than a tenth of second if they are dead or not.

    LMAO, unless you are running bio pellets and a heavy Skimmer. Then it may smell like candy.

    Will smell like rotten bacon wrapped in sewage wrapped in tuna fish put in a gym sock dunked in lard smothered in snot left out in the sun for 3 weeks deep fried and ran thru a food processor. Not kidding.
