Both my mystery snails have pathetic looking shells, I give them calcium in the form of a pill, but i never know how much they get because my betta eats anything and everything i try to give to them, including the calcium and the algae tablets i tried to feed them, he has only left the veggies i give them alone, hes pretty annoying sometimes I threaten him with a toilet flush, but he never listens :p Its a good thing he's so cute!

But any other calcium source ideas that my betta will leave alone???

Can you try liquid calcium in the water or will that harm your betta?

Just another thought: Have you checked the pH of your water? Less than 7.2 can cause shell erosion.
