Thanks. Not only would I not put that in my tank but I think that I will stop eating them also!

If it's an issue of lack of calcium in the water column, I'd recommend fixing that anyway instead of feeding Tums...

If it's a diet issue instead....... there are calcium rich foods you can feed! Including some vegetables!



So I don't really see any point in offering Tums or a similar product that could be full of other stuff...


Calcium carbonate in itself isn't bad.... it's just everything else I'd be a bit worried about...
