Bag of sea shells for aquarium

I bought some sea shells to put in my 29 gallon and I was wondering if they are safe for my betta

If they are Real Seashells, it'll affect the Perimeters. Such as Ph, and Hardness.

One seashell for a 29 gallon will be fine. it will be too small to affect much. but feel free to do some testing. Increased hardness will also stabilize PH. I wouldnt recommend putting the whole bag in though :)
