20 Gallon Tank Calcium for Nerite Snails

Caterpie

Hello!
This is my first time having snails (and also a fish tank). I got 2 nerite snails yesterday and their shell is a little bit broken from the pet store (specially the bigger one) so I was reading about boiling an egg shell, get ride of the membrane, crash it to powder and put it inside the fish tank. I have 4 albino corys, 1 betta fish and 6 neon tetras, I tested my water parameters today and it had 0 ammonia, 0 nitrites, 5 ppm nitrates and pH 7.6. I don’t want to damage my fishes and I want to make sure if this would be ok and if it’s necessary to do, or something else. Another matter to mention is that they’ve been hiding under the decoration and they don’t come outside (I wanted them to clean the algae :( ) I don’t know if this will change later. Thank you!

You could just get some cuttle bone. I’ve heard it worms well and I am going to get some soon
