Some sort of liquid calcium? No that wont work.

Powdered oyster shells can be ordered cheaply online. Thats the best way to go. You can also dry out eggshells and powder them. I beleive powdered coral would work too. Or ground limestone from the store. Maybe if you mean calium tablets..they may I guess....but I definatly wouldnt try. This is a long term buffer, and that seems like it wouldnt do the trick. Its so easy to just use the right things too...

A good form of calcium carbonate is at any pet store such as PetsMart or the like. If you go to the reptile section they usually have some stuff called ReptoCal that's powdered calcium, basically. You use it to dust crickets before you feed them to your lizard or gecko. It seems to work as a good buffer.

I never knew hermit crabs used that stuff. I guess that's why mine never lived for very long.  :lol:
