    I found my tiger snail about 2 feet away from my 25 gal, where he'd obviously escaped. He was all dried out and icky, apparently had been out of water for at least a day or two. So I plopped him into my 55 gallon, figuring he'd make a tasty snack for my jack or cat. Well about a week later, guess what I saw crawling along the water line? Little Tiger Supersnail. How long can these things live out of water anyway!? [icon_e_surprised.gif]

    Turns out he was not just super powered, but super smart. I've since discovered my 25 gallon tank residents love to eat snails; my 55 gallon tank residents ignore them. :D
