I just got my black mystery snail about a month ago, and up untill now he has been one happy snail. I know he has enough to eat because my tank has a good amount of fish and I can always see some dirty spots which he usually quickly eats. Although lately he has been sucked into his shell for the past 3 or 4 days. Sometimes he will stay in his shell for a day but never this long. It is getting to be that winter season and even though my tank is kept at a 80 ish degrees Fahrenheit temp, could he sense that it's winter and be actually hibernating. I really hope he is okay, frankly he's one of my favorite additions to my tank and it would terrible to find that he has passed. Also I picked him up to get a closer look the other day and he has no scratches or anything (the fish and frog love him too) the only thing I noticed that he was a bit more sucked into his shell than usual. I hope there is an answer for my little snail out there although I am new to this website and cant figure out how to post so it would be great if you knew either was is wrong or how to post....
