Well I gave Gary zucchini, but hedid not like Zucchini. So I gave out lettuce and he likes it although the piece was too big to chew. Call me stupid but is lettuce high in calcium too?

I think it depends on the lettuce. I could be wrong, but I think the darker the lettuce is the higher the calcium content is.

Unhappy My snail fell and cracked her shell. Will she be okay?

My snail Rowan got out of the tank, and fell about 3 feet, and cracked the top of her shell, so now it's uneven, and there's a big crack in her shell, and on her back the shell has broken off, exposing her flesh. I have calcium for her, and I've seperated her from the rest of the group, but I'm really worried about her. This happened yesterday, and she hasn't been eating, and she has a white liquid coming from her body.

Does any one have any suggestions, or know what's going on?

Thanks.

Unfortunately, there isn't much you can do at that stage. That snail is likely going to die. Sorry, but it sounds as if it was injured pretty severely if body fluids are seeping and the shell is that severely damaged. Keep the tank water clean and keep watch on the snail. Thats about all you can do.
