Let’s be honest. Sometimes we receive snails from various sources, whether intentional or not, and we don’t always give them the best care. They end up with gnarled, twisted shells that are a huge eyesore. With the rise of ornamental snails and the realization that snails are one of the most beneficial additions to planted aquariums, people are becoming more aware of the snail’s health requirements. Those requirements are incredibly easy to meet. Snails itself are fairly undemanding and with a little calcium you can give your ornamental snails the healthiest shell possible. This week’s video goes into detail on how to use calcium in the aquarium and how to meet other requirements that Ramshorn snails, and most other snails, require in order to thrive.
