question about Zebra Nerites shell
So a couple of weeks ago I transfered my Zebra Nerite snail from one ten gallon tank to the other due to a lack of algae and she wouldn't eat any of the veggies I was providing. Anyway, when I picked her up I noticed that her shell felt really weak and after posting a question about it I got a lot of helpful suggestions about what to do. I've been adding one Tums tablet to the water every two days and it seems to be working. I just transferred her back to the ten gallon tank she was originally in and the shell does feel like it's starting to harder back up. But I've noticed that she's developing some white spots on her shell. Is this from the calcium of the Tums or is something horrible happening to her?
