Cuttlebone for snails.

This is the first time I've ever had snails and I've been told to give them calcium supplements like cuttlebone, but how do I give it to them? Should I stick the whole piece in there, or break it up and a piece here and there?
Does it desolve
I'm sure this probably has a really obvious answer, but I want to do it right the first time.
If it matters I've got about 13 ramshorns and a few bladder snails that were stow aways on some plants

10 HM, 3 HMPK, 5 HMPK fry
8 German Blue Ram, 5 Green Dragon BNP, 4 Albino BNP, 4 Calico BNP, 6 Red BNP, 5 Kuhli Loaches, 2 ADF, 7 Peppered Cories, & 6 Tiger Endlers + Fry
12 full time tanks, 4 NPT, 6 QT/Breeders

break off a piece and wedge it halfway under a and there is fine or on one piece. up to you. these do slowly dissolve. and can change your ph.
