I read that cuttlebone "for birds" can be used as a calcium supplement for snail shell growth. I put a piece in my tank a week ago, but my snails ignore it. Anyone have any experience using this method? My ph is good, just trying to go above and beyond. Also doing crushed coral in the filter, and even tried giving them a cherry flavored tums tab.

They are mystery snails btw.

they don't need to eat it. It will break down in the water and that's all that's needed.
