they seem to be decent thickness, but they are like getting little divots, or crators coming out torwards the inside of the circle (ramshorn) of the shell. i dont know whats wrong, i keep my water pretty good. not perfect, but pretty good.

Do they need more food or somthing? the tank is huge, 155 gal, but i have:
1x 10" pleco
1x 6' pleco
3x ramshorn snails
2x mystery snails
3x "other" snails (small, get big)
2x cory cats
2x pictus cats
1x sinidontis cat
1x ....catfish?

I have low lighting (2 energy saving bulbs, 18watt i think)

what else can i feed all my 'lil guys?

the only thing i can think of is making sure your calcium is at a decent level, since the shell is primarily calcium carbonate, i hope someone can stop by that will have a little more information for you
