I have recently got a snail that has multiple shell deficiencies any ideas on how to add Calcium btw I have used cuttle bone before and I will be adding it but I think it might be a bit to slow, i was also think I could add in calcium tablets for humans if they are safe any ideas? Thanks

I have not tried carcarlous rock as I can’t find any in our area although I did have 3 large old aquarium snail shell which I crush up to release calcium and othe minerals.

Try grinding up cuttle bone into a powder and mixing it in with a snello recipe. The snails will eat and use the calcium, and whatever isn't eaten will dissolve into the water.
