Hello,

I had an empty 30 gallon aquarium burning a hole in my pocket so I decided to setup a shell dweller aquarium. After some research it seemed that most people use escargot shells so I went that route. However, these shells that I purchased float.
Is this normal? Does soaking the shells stop them from floating? Anyone speak from experience with this?

Thanks.

Have you submerged them with your hand and then rotated ... to get the trapped air out ?
