Ramshorns...New Substrate

Can Ramshorns or Pond snails dig up though sand if they get buried? Also what would be the best way to add sand, over another substrate, in an already flooded tank?

Re: adding sand on top of existing substrate...

Just know that if sand is heavier than the substrate you've already got (I.E., Aquasoil, Fluval Shrimp Stratum, et al), it'll end up beneath your current substrate bed in no time flat. Same for substrates that are larger in grain than sand and allow for it to fall through the cracks (things like Eco-Complete, pea gravel, Akadama).
