Whoohoo!!!

I finally got some mystery snails! (They're not apple snails, but they'll do LOL)

I just read somewhere that you can crush up raw egg shells and stick them in the filter to help with their shells. Anyone ever done this or have any other suggestions? Thanks!

I use cuttle bone, the stuff you get for birds. I just crush up a small piece and sprinkle it in the water. It's great for shrimp too.

Well, I can get eggs at the store lol. Cuttle bone might be a little harder for me to find here. Is it that stuff that birds sharpen their beak on?

Yah it is. Since I'm always at Petsmart or Petco for our dogs and for various other stuff, I grabbed a cuttle bone. One will last a long time.

Only if she drops the water level by a few inches. Mystery snails don't breed like the others. They lay their egg sacks above the water line
