So I'm back, so I have a few seashells in my tank, and I've seen my 2 RES eating them? Theres a hole is one and a few nibbles in the other one, is this ok? I don't want my turtles to get sick. A person at Petsmart said it was ok but I'm still worried

Could be a problem if a large part is bitten off.

The first one is a small hole, but the other looks a little big

Right, so it's likely they will keep going at it.

Should I remove them?
