always supplemented with a small piece of cuttlebone (for birds) tied to a
rock. The snails get a little extra calcium from that.

Yes, I did that as well, and found it was partially effective. But the last time I was in picking up some KNO3, I discovered some calcium nitrate. I now add a LITTLE of that to bring the calcium on my test kit to about 20ppm. I also add this seperate of my usual PMDD, because I heard something about calcium depositing out if left in the PMDD?

Anyway, I have found my Red Ramshorn snails to be growing harder, thicker, and darker shells. I am pleased. :-)
