Unintentionally I have introduced pond snails to my 46 gallon while still cycling. I'm ALMOST through with the cycle. Ammonia-0, Nitrite-5ish, Nitrate- Up there (haven't tested these in a few days). I know that with a fishless cycle ammonia has to be added to the tank every so often to keep the bacteria fed so that's what I've been doing. Well, I now have 11+ (probably more) snails. So should I just discontinue adding ammonia? Shouldn't they finish up the cycle for me?
