Nerite Snail Staying Out of Water


Recommended Posts

Hello everyone,

My friend has a 5 gallon aquarium with a male betta, a nerite snail, and a mystery snail. They have had this tank for around 4-6 months now. Both nerite snails they have kept in the tank so far seem to like to escape out of the tank often. The first nerite snail escaped the tank and was found dead a few weeks later under the aquarium stand. The second snail has escaped several times, but they always put it back in the tank. Now, the tank is sealed shut so that the snail doesn't escape. The snail still seems to prefer staying above the water line than in the water, and will sometimes rest in the filter of the tank.

Is there a problem with the water that should be changed, or is this a common behavior in nerite snails?
