So I have two tanks, a 10g and a 20g, both planted. The 20g has Serpae Tetra and Bronze Cory, while the 10g has a Betta splendens.
Well, while raiding Petsmart of their Malaysian Trumpet Snails (the 10g has sand, so we wanted them for aeration) we saw they have Mystery Snails on sale for $1. Why not? Got a blue one for the 20g and a yellow for the 10g. And 17 MTS .... hey, they are a 'pest' so they're free
However, I know these guys need calcium for their shells, so my question is how can I supplement for this? I have really soft water, with a GH around the 25 ppm area.
And how do I prevent that from adversely affecting the fish and plants (I know calcium is a nutrient for plants, but sometimes with things too much is as bad as too little)?
I have slightly acidic water at a pH of 6.8 would like to keep it slightly acidic and soft as that is what the fish prefer. Calcium will make the water 'hard' though won't it?
