Where is the crack and the hole? Is it near the opening of his shell where his head is, or is it on his spire?

First of all, make sure you are adding calcium to your water. Also your pH should be at least 7.0, preferrably higher. You can get calcium from a product called Kents Liquid Calcium, you can get it from crushed coral, cuttlebone, even eggshells. You should also be feeding him food high in calcium, like kale and the like.

If it's just a small split, sometimes it will heal itself. Depending on where it is, you can use marine epoxy putty to patch it up.

I'm really not the expert on this-- Donya?
