    Hey guys....last saw my Tiger Snail happily cleaning the back wall of my tank.....this morning he's missing.I checked the sump area in case he tried to pull a prison break but cant see him.Do Tiger snails burrow as well?

    my so called tiger snail

    hello everyone,
    im new to the site and trying to figure out if this snail in my tank is indeed a tiger snail like i was told when i bought him and if he is the cause of all my fish dissapearing one by one, he stays under sand most of time unless you put meat in tank he has a long shiny shell and at least 3 inches long, shell is white with tiger like markings. thanks from south florida
    for any help you can offer me.
