Apparently apples arent meant for higher temperature aquariums, as the heat of the water increases their metabolism, and shortens their life expectancy! I had no idea!
Also, apples go into a 'dormant state' if they eat alot at once, or there is a change in tanks/water params. It could be he is just adjusting.
If you are really concerned, PM Chesherca, she knows all about snails!
You may have been right, maybe all that mating tired him into a dormant state LOL!
I just recently held him out of the water a few minutes to get him some air, put him back in
and is crawling around for the first time in I think a week! I hope he is alright now
