Camille Posted January 24, 2021 Share Posted January 24, 2021 My question: can I cycle my 40 gallon tank with only snails? I seeded the tank with bio material from another established aquarium, bought my first sponge filter from Aquarium Co-op and used plant and rocks from another aquarium for the new tank. I want to eventually add pea puffers purchased from AquaHuna once the tank is good to go. I will probably wait until spring before I add them. I read about cycling a new tank on the co-op blog but it wasn't clear to me if I could use snails. I know snails release minimal ammonia but I'm hoping they poop enough to get the cycle started. I have 8 snails in the tank. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
