    Sounds like a calcium deficiency. In the water and / or foods.

    I use carbon. Will it take it out the calcium I add?

    Not sure what the recommended dosing would be for a FW tank. Do you measure your Ca?

    No. It won't.

    I keep cuttlebone in my filter box to add calcium to the tank for shrimp and snails. I also throw the small pieces that break off when cutting it into about quarter size pieces into the tank.

    My nerites really colored up nicely once I started doing this.

    Okay that's just about enough! Being cost conscious, thinking outside of the box and crossing the fauna boundaries for a solution is just way too much for one post!

    Seriously though, great suggestion.
