cycle question

I have a dead turbo snail would that suffice to start my cycle? If so how long should I leave it in? Also I question about feather dusters can they appear in a tank or do u need to buy them from you lfs? Ty much

I agree. Leave the snail in to jumpstart the cycle. Buying LR will introduce mini dusters into your tank. I deleted your two bump threads. Bumping is not allowed according to our site rules.
