I've had the snails for a few weeks now, or something like that. Anyway, I've been feeding them leafy greens most days and I am keeping their water nice and clean but I have issues. I added crushed coral to bring up the Ph and to give them calcium for their shells, but their shells are deteriorating. The pointy bit where the "swirl" comes to an end looks like it's becoming a bit transparent and flakey. I don't know what I am doing wrong but when I tested the Ph it was 5!! My tap water is soft and tests at 6, my other 2 tanks sit between 6 and 6.5 so I can't understand why this one has a Ph of 5 especially since I added a fair whack of the crushed coral to bring it up!
Any ideas what I'm doing wrong? Or any suggestions to fix this problem as I think the Ph is to blame for the poor wee guys shells! I don't want to use chemicals as I don't think these will really help, and because I have cory babies in the tank as well. The cories, on the other hand, are thriving and have grown so much since moving them into this tank with the snails.
