Is this to prevent any damage in the future for the turtles or is this for the turtles while they already have some kind of calcium deficiency? My turtles are still babies but I want them to grow healthy. Should I buy this now or wait to they grow older?
Answer by ChewySep 26, 2019
The Zoo Med Dr. Turtle Slow-Release Calcium Block Turtle Supplement can be used to help prevent issues as well as treat some soft shell issues. It can safely be used with hatchling turtles.

If I use these with yellow bellied sliders, do I still need to use the calcium powder when feeding them?
Answer by ChewyJan 26, 2022
The slow-release calcium block can be used with yellow belly sliders, it will help add calcium to the water which they will consume when drinking. However, Zoo Med does not recommend using a calcium powder when feeding them as it can just foul the water. Make sure they are being fed a balanced pelleted diet with added vitamins and minerals.

Can I use water conditioner with it for my turtle
Answer by ChewyOct 08, 2020
This supplement may be used with a water conditioner.

How often should these be added? I want to use this on a 13 gallon fish aquarium for my mystery snail.
Answer by ChewySep 26, 2020
The block begins to slowly dissolve once placed inside the water. When it is fully dissolved you may replace it as needed. 1 block treats up to 15 gallons

Roger's treat

Roger, our rescued red ear slider, loves these and eats them right up! Roger has a funny personality who loves to show off whenever anyone is around! Very cool turtle

Very disappointed

This literally dissolves in 2 days in a 30 gallon tank of water.

Freshwater snail/shrimp tank !

Everyone loves this ! My snails shells are slowly getting more colorful now that I’ve put this in my tank ! I wish I could hide it a little more but it’s cute enough so it’s not an issue

I dont know what i did wrong

I don't know if im overreacting but when i first put mine in the tank you could see it starting to dissolve then it stopped and now 24 hours later it looks the exact same and i see nothing happening to it, and my turtle is showing no interest

Great product

The calcium block is great for my snails and turtles shell health, very easy to use and I like how it’s safe if ingested by the turtle.

Fishtank water

I use these in my freshwater aquarium. It is great for my snails shells. It just melts away. Calcium good for fish bones too I guess.

dissolves very fast

I guess it worked OK, but was gone very fast. My Zatoichi seemed no different with it than without it.
