Quick snail question

Recommended Posts

How do you get a snail to release their hold on the glass without hurting them?   I'm trying to tear apart my son's 10 gallon guppy tank;   Current population is being moved to my 40 gallon community tank.   The guppies were easy peasy but the nerite has a tight hold on the glass and I can't get him to release.

Just pull it off, no harm will be done

When my kid was little I let him take a ramshorn out of my tank, he pulled hard before it released and it was literally pulled out of the shell.


Pull slowly and they will let go on their own, or slide them up out of the water and they will let go.
