I just got my new snails today!!! . Sadly one of them looks like their shell go hit during shipping. Thoughts on what to do
This is as good as I can getDo you have a closer up picture? I can't really tell how bad the damage is from here.
Generally speaking, add plenty of calcium and if it's really bad you might need to make a patch for him or keep him in a breeder box or hospital tank for a while so his exposed flesh doesn't get infected or become a snack for another fish or snail.
Yeah. How weird that they were this damged. The company seems to take care of their snails. I'll send them an email and see what happens.The little white spots look like nerite eggs, actually.
Sounds like you've got a good pH and plenty of calcium, so they're in good hands now. Poor little guys.
Do you think that a patch job would be beneficial?If it's hard then their bodies should have enough protection to survive.

Also will any of the snails shells heal enough to be like the rest of the unharmed shell, or are they stuck like that?
