    Unhappy All 4 DPs sitting on bottom

    I added 4 dwarf puffers to my snail tank last night... when I put them in, they all kinda sat on the bottom for a while and then started swimming around. This morning, they're all sitting there again with their little eyes buggin all around :p

    Question- is this normal from transportation stress or should I be concerned?

    Mine took about 3-4 days to settle in..during that time they always hid out of site and didnt eat a thing. Now there little pigs and run to the glass anytime i walk in the room. Give them some time...they'll come around!

    Yea, at the store I work at it's so funny 'cause when we first get them they mope around for a while. In due time, they get REALLY active and when I clean the tanks they chase my hand!

    Mine seem to rest at the bottom of the tank on a daily basis. Such little busy bodies!

    Now it seems like they have a preference for sleeping on the bottom and on top of a rock I'd probably sleep alot too if I was out snail huntin all day :p
