Hi parrot,

Maybe it's a calcium deficiency? Did you try googling that to see if your snails have the same type of symptoms?

You can use ground up eggshells but they have to be baked first. And the cuttlebones that people put in bird cages can be washed and put into the tank as well (not sure how much you would put in, you'd have to research that).

Good luck and I hope your snails get better.
