    Applying a cuttlebone into the tank, would this help supply fishes a goo source of calcium and also at the same time do not disturb the BB?

    I've heard up people using cuttlebone in their tanks to help snails when they have a calcium deficiency, should be fine with fish too.

    Yes cuttlebone is soft and a good source of calcium for crustacians and some fish. It can also raise your Ph!!

    I had a turtle for quite a while, and I gave it cuttlebone often to keep its shell hard.
