    3my vet does not recommend
    By Mo Ordonez
    They do dissolve pretty fast. Within a few hours it was almost fully gone, not completely but definitely getting there. Anyway, my vet told me these don't actually work and recommended that I rather feed my turtle cuttlebone. I really do not know for sure how effective these blocks are but I think I'll just play it safer and go with my vet's suggestion. For the fact that they did dissolve very quickly I will give it 3 stars. I was expecting them to last a bit longer. Price was real good though, I'll give them that.

    4Its worth the convienience!
    By Jamie K.
    I love that I can provide for my res with this awesome little calcium block I just drop in his tank. It's so convenient, the only thing I did notice is it seemed to dissolve quicker then I was hoping. But I will definitely purchase again.

    5Great For Shimp And Crayfish Too
    By Richard
    Even though I originally bought the block for some painted turtles I also use the block for tanks that have shrimp and crayfish. The block slowly dissolves so that there is a steady release of calcium in the water to help the crayfish and shrimp with molting. The block is well worth the money.
