I collect them at the beach. My birds also love them. Just make sure to clean and thouroughly cook them.

I have some pure calcium carbonate available from when I was making a clay substrate for froglets, but you can also just crush cuttlebone and use that. It's mostly calcium carbonate anyway but it also contains some extra minderals.
Currently keeping Dendrobates auratus "panama special", Mantella baroni and Afrixalus dorsalis
