Could I use something like a piece of a plastic bag and and glue it with super glue?david1978 said: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.
Don't do anything to its shell, let nature do its thing, it will heal. Just add calcium supplementation to help it build back its shell.Aquarius_in_nyc said: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..
