cuttel bone for snails
 
i heard that you can put in cuttel bone for birds in your fish tank for your snails to bump up calcium to stop shell erosion any one know if this would work

Yes, it does but it also rots. Maybe just bake them plaster of Paris pucks. Easy to make. Get Dap brand of plaster of Paris and combine sinking pellets with it. Worked well for me. Use ice trays to make cubes of them. A cube can last three to four weeks while the snails bite them away little by little trying to get through the pellets. No flakes. They're a mess.
