    I have this soil that just stands there and is no use so I thought if I could use it for my snails so they can dig in :) There is no visible information about any chemicals or fertilisers, but it just has some grit and seramis added. I do not know if the grit or seramis is gonna harm the snails or not? I do have a spare fish net that I could use to remove the large pieces, the grit and the seramis and then out it into the tank?

    Here the soil is:

    I'd advise to avoid using as there is likely things added to the mixture to make plants grow

    I dont think there will be anything listed if it's added but generally all compost, unless organic, will have fertilizers. I'd say better to be safe than sorry.
