Hey I have a question for you!!! Where did you find the calcium? Like at a health store or at a lfs? I don't know really what I'm looking for. But I know I need it.

You can get it at a lfs but it's generally much more expensive. In a health store you can get tablet form clcium tablets which work fine.

Cool thanks!! So if I go to a health store... Lol I've never gotten calcium tablets before... Will they be purely calcium? Will there be anything in them I have to watch out for? Hmm.... Can I eat them? Lol Sorry about all the questions... You probably don't know that answer to that one. So maybe my mom will buy them thinking they are for me :D heh heh. Thanks again. Woah.. I'm looking it up... It's a liquid? Lol weird...

Wait... Ok I'm confused sorry. The calcium for fish is liquid? But the ones at a health store would be tablets? So if I buys the tablets. Would I just put it in the tank? Or do they sell liquid calcium at a health store?

I was reading about that today!!!! Very cool. So you feed your calcium supplements to your snail? Lol weird I never thought about feeding it to them. I know if I did that though my fish would eat it all.
