there is a difference in oyster shells and hydrated lime.

oyster shells will keep the medium from becoming acidic over time.it act as a long term buffer.it helps maintain. i'm just guessing but i would have to say calcium carbonate would do the same thing as oyster shells.but i could be wrong there.

hydrated lime on the hand will drastically change an acidic medium to more alkaline medium.alittle goes along way.
don't use to much i've done it before it took two months for a casing to fully colonize

calcium carbonate = oyster shells
peat is slighty acidic from the start, hence the need to adjust it with some hydrated lime when making the casing mix.
