Actually, no, he's not that blue. I just shone a flashlight on him so I didn't have to use flash. I got him from nnnn a week ago and he hasn't eaten anything yet. Is that okay?

Snails take a little while to adjust at times.

I've had quite a few and some varied their lack of feeding after being brought home from a day to about a week. As soon as your little guy feels comfortable, he should start eating.

What are you offering as food?

I've tried algae water and broccoli. I'll try spinach tomorrow. Haha I love union food's easy access to veggies. "may I have one leaf of spinach? Yes, just one."

He spends most of his time sitting in his shell though.

Wowa what did you use a blue torch or something because that colour is stunning. Snails take some time to adjust he will eat when he is ready.

I always would feed my snails Romaine lettuce, spinach and they liked the strings of carrot that you find in mixed pre-packaged salads. They also ate freeze-dried tubifex cubes and pleco algae wafers. :)

Green beans and bell peppers are a fave! Mine never took to the algae wafers.
