Calcium for ramshorns?


Recommended Posts

I really prefer having something like cuttle bone or wonder shells in with any crustacean. They do so much better with plentiful minerals in the water.

Snails are mollusks, not crustaceans.  :P  ;)

 

As for calcium and Ramshorns, I have hard water, which seems to have enough calcium to fit their needs.  Other snail species seem to need calcium supplements more than Ramshorns.  Then again, Ramshorns have thin shells in comparison to Apple Snails, Malaysian Trumpets, and other species.  Calcium supplements, however, won't do any harm!  :D

People that keep shrimp even recommend feeding ramshorn Tums once and while.

 

That's only if they have a tiny tummy ache.  :P
