I've Got 3 snails in a 15-20l fish tank i when i got them they shells looked like slightly decaded i guess like gritty i guess i describe it as that. & i was reading they need calcium to fix there shells but. i read you can use aquarium salt/ cuttle bone which i have. But what it doesnt say how much to put in & how much cuttle bone to place in the water. & when ill start to notice snails shell heal. Also what is it a GH test kit? General hardiness of the water? what should that be for snails? but also have 2 prego female guppies in the tank at the same time.

Salt isnt going to help their shells. GH is a measure of calcium and magnesium. These combined with KH are used by snails to grow their shells. Perhaps a better fix would be a bit of a turtle block or even just a bit of eggshell. If you want a detailed write up on care check out applesnail.net
