    To avoid shell damage, they need a ph of 7.0+ the higher the better, hard water, and a high calcium diet.

    You can take some of those, crush them up, add a little water, add some calcium, then freeze it to make ur own wafers with more calcium for the snails.

    What is your ph?
    Is water particularly soft?


    I find mysterys are a lot tougher of a keep than most think.
    imo keeping them in anything but a species only tank with barebottom and bagged crushed coral is a big headache for more than a few reasons.
