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.
