Fly-Specked Cerith

Does anyone know whether or not Fly-Specked Cerith snails are able to right themselves when upside down? I know my Nassarius can but I know my Astreas cant. What about Ceriths? Thanks

I think Fly-Specked Cerith snails are fine since they live in the substrate so should be able to right themselves.

ceriths are fine unless they get stuck. their shell is shaped more like a bowling pin, able to roll around where as the astreas are more like an open umbrella that is upside down if that makes sense.
