I put some egg shell into my tank for my new golden apple snail because it's shell wasn't in great condition when I bought it, but it hasn't touched it.

Is the snail meant to eat the eggshell or should I just leave it to dissolve in the water to raise calcium levels?

Or should I just get rid of the eggshell and try a different way to give it extra calcium?

Thanks for your help.

I love true Apple snails. It's hard to find them around here.

Here's one of the best sites for info on them:
