I got this for my two snails, as my water is pretty soft and I was worried about their shells getting enough calcium. After about a week, the one snail who I was most worried about looks to have a strengthened shell and the other one is doing great! Make sure you rinse it out thoroughly, otherwise there is a lot of dust. It comes in a double packaged plastic bag so no worries about breaking open and making a mess, there are some whole shells in there so you know it is truly pure crushed shells/coral.
I added mostly for a snail that hasnt been very active. It was a suggestion to add coral bit not much more has happen with the snail. Still alive but I'll probably look at other factors. Coral comes in nice small bags, so I'll probably use it elsewhere.
The coral came in on time and looked like crushed coral. It weighed roughly one pound. Hopefully my shrimp like it.
My order was shipped the next day, I placed my order in the early evening, and it arrived on time and in perfect condition. Thanks to everyone at aquarium Co-Op for the excellent service.
With our Pacific Northwest Water being so soft crushed coral is the perfect media to add to the aquarium to stabilize the pH. In this case we are using it to buffer a mini musk turtle tank.
Had a tank with dropping ph and got this to try a slower more long term fix. Seems to have worked as ph has stabilizedafter a week or so and will be order some more to keep on hand just in case. The price is amazing so if you having problems with super low ph it won't hurt to give this stuff a try!
So, these were purchased for my wife's tank. It's a 22g long, with a tiled bottom.
She has a whole bunch of snails. They're her favorite. Well, her snail shells started to discolor. I've never kept snails as more than feeders for other fish, so I didn't know their was a calcium defenciy in her tank. After talking to some of the Aquarium Co-Op they advised I add crushed coral to her tanks canister to subsidize calcium. It's been a few weeks since doing this, her snails all look really healthy again.
I put it in my substrate.My guppies liked it.
After bringing in a sample of my aquarium water for testing, I found out I need to raise the ph. Conveniently packaged, these crushed coral bits fit into a mesh sleeve, also sold in the store. I placed one in my AquaClear filter media bucket & voila! Happy fish!
1 bag per 10 gallons for buffer the small one pound bags make it very easy for smaller aquariums.
