Yup, that's my experience exactly. When introducing nerites into a new tank, they try to burrow and hide because they're stressed. In a few days, they'll be out and about doing there thing.

DBlauj I believe mine did a few times. If I remember correctly I plucked em out and they dug again so I figured must be natural.

do nearite snails burrow in gravel?

I just bought 2 nearite snails. I let them acclimate for about a half hour and then put them in my tank. One of them went to town, traveling across the gravel to the glass where he is happily eating, but the other one I put on a plant, he crawled down, and seems to be burrowing in the gravel, he's almost covered now. I didn't think nearites did this. Is there something wrong with him? Thanks!
