Can you put him in a little tub with water and see if he moves at all. Sounds like he might be chez, but wouldnt know really.

The only snails I have ad I squished against the glass of the tank - not the sort of care your one needs I dont think!

Ah never mind chez. The hermit must have been thinking of moving house then, I bet he's wondering where the heck his new bungalow has gone

they can sit dormant on the sand for days if they are struggling to find food this allows a bit of growth normally then they get back up

mine sat in the sump for a week without moving until one day he decided to move lol

hermits tend to be the snails downfall as they will pick it out for the shell quite funny to watch always best to leave the shells in the tank as then the hermits have an option to go bigger depnding on the size of the shell
