My mystery snail that I got yesterday has a crack on its shell. Is there a way to fix it? I added some cuttlebone and will be feeding them blanched vegetables and sinking wafers (algae wafers and carnivore wafers).
What are the other shells?I have seen a few videos of putting bandaids on shells with pieces of other shells with nail polish.
Could I use something like a piece of a plastic bag and and glue it with super glue?The best bet would be an old snail shell if you have it. Next would probably be something like a sea shell that's been in a tank to soak out the salt. I bet you could even use fake nails since there non toxic incase people chew them.
Oh lord, I'm cringing at these suggestions... Leave it alone, add some calcium supplements either in food form or directly to the water and It should heal on its own..
I found one of my mystery snail's had climbed out of the tank and fell behind the stand a distance of a few feet. It was back there for at least 1 or 2 days before I accidentally found it. The snail was sealed shut and the entire edge of the shell broke off from the fall. Thought for sure it was dead or would die. I placed it back in the tank and observed it. In less than 2 weeks the piece that broke off grew back and filled in entirely. The most amazing thing I've ever witnessed from these guy's.
The first picture is of the severe break it obtained in October and the other photo is the snail today..View attachment 513947 View attachment 513951
