I read up a thread on another fish forum, and eggshells are suggested as calcium supplements.

Just boil the empty shells to clean them, but I think beyond that, they're good.

there's a couple of eggshells out on the stove right now, because my fiance's brother is allergic to cleaning up after himself... I may go boil them. Mike also put boiled sand dollars in his tank too.

We have Ramshorns, ponds, Malaysian Trumpets, the horned nerite, and 2 "mystery" snails, and a trapdoor in our tank with our big mossball, and I haven't seen any of them do more than climb over it. I also have rams, ponds, and MTS in the frog tank with the same results.

So, in MY experience, they pretty much ignore it.
