    Are you dosing anything in your tank to get rid of flatworm or nudis?

    They fall off at times. In the sea they just wait for the next wave to help them up.
    But we do not have those REAL wavemakers.

    So you need to help it out.

    Is there still enough food for it to eat?

    So it will become part of your daily routine.
    Find snail
    help him up
    Hopefully he learns at some point that there is no more waves to help him up
