Mystery snail with shell cracks

so i bought this snail from the pet shop about 2 months ago. When i bought him his shell was already cracked and frayed, but he was the heaviest looking snail there so i thought he would be fine. but ever since i got him his shell has become progressively worse. however he is still very healthy and active and a good eater. so what can i do to help his shell.
p.s i have tried to feed his brittle bone but he wasn't interested at all.

Thanks

Look up "preparing egg shells for your aquarium" or something similar, several YouTube videos on it. Cleaned empty egg shells will help boost the calcium. I don't know if that crack can fully heal, but it shouldn't get worse with the calcium boost.
Another option is too look up "snello recipes/snail jello recipes"
Good luck.

Due to photobuckets new bs cost for use of images on forums I have deleted all photobucket accounts. I apologize if you enjoyed or found my photos helpful.
