Just got in from an evening out to find 3 of my 5 cerith snails climbing the glass of my tank again. I thought they lived predominantly in the sand? There's  not much algae on the glass. Makes me wonder if there's enough food in the sand for them? sand sifting starfish is fine though.

My nass snails spend most of their time in the sand, but when I feed the tank they shoot about all over, including up the glass.  They have also layed eggs on the glass, so could be they like to explore up high to lay eggs?

Mine do the same when I feed they all pop up out of the sand like subs coming to surface.

They also go all over the place including glass and rocks

Thanks guy's. Crickey another thing I've just seen, my tube worm looks like it's been cut in half! With half lying in the sand with what's left standing up with the fan sticking out catching things like normal. Anyone got experience of that happening?

I know they can fire an old head and then grow another :)

fan tubeworms  losing a head is normally a sign of starvation they don't often last to long afterwards with the new one .
