Will My Cycle Be Okay?

    So today some thing really sad happened.
    My little ACF Blotchie died. Rest In Peace Blotchie.
    So after I buried her, we moved the rainbowfish downstairs. Now my tank has nothing in it apart from Saffron (Ivory snail)who I think is dead.

    Will my cycle be okay with nothing in it, or do we have to do something to keep it going?

    The bacteria need ammonia to feed on. If the snail is alive then move it to another tank and dose pure ammonia daily or add another source of ammonia such as fish food. If the snail is dead then leave it in the tank (if the tank is small then the snail may be enough for a while). Or just move the filter to a tank with fish in.

    My tank is 20 gallon. Is Saffron going to be enough or do I need to do the fish food thing?

    Okay. When do I need to do it?
