I'm glad your frogs are improving! It sounds as if you are on the right track.

I'd recommend asking the vet for clarification. Sounds like really
poor advice to me. Plaster (calcium sulfate) isn't particularly soluble in water, and is not at all palatable; sea shells are not soluble in tap water at all, and so can't help at all (and if not properly cleaned could be a disease vector).
Calcium gluconate would be a far more suitable soluble calcium source. Herp vets here tend to give a dose of D3 (usually injectable, but likely oral in frogs) for treatment of advanced MBD, but please don't try this yourself.
I searched for info on the Pisces supplements (I'm in the US, and we don't have them here; you're in Australia, I'm guessing? It would be helpful to know your location...), and I didn't find a guaranteed analysis. Hard to judge them without real information.
Most of us here use Repashy or Dendrocare supplements.
Hope this helps, and I hope your frogs keep improving.
