If I add calcium tablets, how much and how often do I put it in my 10 gal tank?
Short answer is it depends on how quickly they consume it. Trial and error may be your best bet. Start small, breaking the tablets into manageable servings.
What are your water parameters (GH, KH, pH would be helpful)? The reason I ask is that if your water is relatively hard, you may already have enough calcium.
You might also reconsider the fresh vegetables. Snails really seem to appreciate it and it doesn't carry the potential negative consequences you might get with calcium tablets (cloudy water, increased hardness, potential to form dead spots in substrate).
