I guess I dont know for sure that they fell off the wall, but why else would they be on their backs?
Maybe they died and then fell? I had a Mystery Snail one time that was on his back on the gravel. I thought he was dead, but I waited to see. A few hours later he was roaming about. I don't know how he got on his back and/or why he stayed like that - I had heard if they get flipped on their back they won't be able to get back over and will die. I don't know for sure as this one got turned around. Anyway, I've only had a couple of mystery snails and after a few months, they passed away. I don't think my tank generates enough algae to keep them fed well enough. I have an on-going population of tiny snails from a previous floating plant experiment, but they don't seem to grow and survive...just an endless supply of little guys.
