I bought some cuttle bone for my snails.. Since it is a source of calcium.

Are you supposed to boil one? (I read this but I want to make sure it is correct)

When do I throw it away and replace it? About how long should it last?

I have two nerite snails... I don't know anything about using this for snails or for birds so this is new.. Any extra info appreciated!

I read that you can just tie down the cuttlebone and leave the soft side up. I have ramshorns and stuck in one of those 7-day feeder cubes (chopped up). The don't eat it but I'm sure as it disintegrates the calcium is released in the water.
When I had cuttle bone for my turtles years ago, it would last forever in the water. Crack yours in half and tie it down and you should be good for a while.

I think the boiling suggestion is solely to water log it so it sinks by itself.
