mystery snail shelless

When I checked on my fish this morning I see that my mystery snail has crawled out of his shell. He doesn't seem to be moving but he's not floating. He's just sitting next to his shell. Is he dead? Should I fish him out before he fouls the tank? He's kind of big and he's been really good up to this point. I sure hate to lose him. Shoot.

Their shells are attached so if he is detached then he is most likely dead.
big b likes this.

If i drew it it'd look like a monkey eating a horsradish on the moon or something

Well that sucks. He's been a lot of fun to watch and care for.
