Accidentally buried my snail!
So today i was cleaning my tank and i accidentally buried my baby apple snail in some gravel. He's so tiny and he's the same color and size as some of the stones. I can't find him is he gone for good or is there any chance he might crawl out? I feel so bad!!:cry:

Ahah, sorry, he'll most likely be fine unless he's under like 2 inches or more of substrate. Otherwise he'll climb out himself most likely. My Ramshorn actually used to bury himself to find extra food under the sand, no idea why since there was plenty up top and ramshorn aren't known for burrowing but he did! I even have pics of him ^_^

Oh okay good! he's not very deep at all. Thank you so much for the quick reply I feel relieved!
