Affect on fish?

How do these supplements and treatments affect fish? My snails live with guppies. Do I need to get a tank just for the snails?

Calcium carbonate increases KH and pH so some fish from soft acidic waters may become susceptible to finrot although I don't find this a common issue otherwise the supplements suggested should not be an issue. Guppies are fine with snails although some do have a tendency to harass the snails. If you find one like that, isolate immediately. I had to ditch one female guppy off my snail tanks after I found her trying to bite their antennaes off.

I'm ready for the pressure.
The drama and the pleasure!
If there is one thing I want to see here, it's HUMOR.
I believe I can fly!
I believe I can touch the sky!
I think about it every night and day!
I stand in awe of my body.
