Why do baby snails bury themselves in the rocks? I catch them doing that all the time.

They are looking for uneaten food. Then again some snails prefer to be under the substrate and only come out at night.

I feel bad because some of them are injuring their shells. Is their something better I could be using instead of rocks?

I can't say I have ever had a snail injured by a rock but you could try putting some sand or gravel on the bottom.

I changed the sharp rocks to some none sharp rocks. I hope it helps.
