Mystery Snails Question
Posted 09 September 2017 - 08:17 PM
I think my snails are lacking something in their diet. Their shells aren't looking the greatest.
Any advice or tips?
Also since moving them to this corner tank, they haven't laid any eggs, whereas previously they were going mental and laying every 2-3 wks.

I ended up putting cuttlebone in the tank and I figured they would graze off the algae growing on the cuttlebone and get a bit of calcium at same time. Mostly they seemed to ignore or I just never saw them.
A friend feeds antacid tablets. Example given was Tums but was told anything that is mostly calcium carbonate with flavouring. And they do well on them.
Shell pitting is low ph or age.
Other foods: Foods high in calcium are dark greens blanched. Avoid anything high in oxcylic acids like spinach.
