Added several snails on Thursday after 45 min of drip acclimatization. All are fine in the other tanks but in my main one, one tylomelana, one zebra, and a bumblebee all remained closed up. Another zebra and the shrimp and fish I added that day are all active.

It's been almost 48 hours and those three still haven't moved. Ammonia level appears to be zero.

When should I give up on them?

Hope you don't have residual Planaria treatment in the tank because that will cause them to die a slow death.

Do the poke and smell test. Inverts decay pretty fast so you will smell them once they are out of the water.

ive had mystery snails take a couple days to open up. it did seem to help if i rolled them over onto the foot and let them sit there like that. im wondering if they dont get messed up in shipping some times and cant figure out what way to come out
