cycling questions....anyone ever try live bait shrimp

I live on the water and can get bait shrimp cheaply....would one or 2 of these help cycle my 80 gal once i get it up and going?
(then I can take them and use them fishing LOL )

That seems to be the way to go. However I just cycled mine with only cured LR in 3 weeks. I haven't put any live fish in yet...later this week.
You need to give more info on your plans. FOWLR, reef,etc?

I don't think living inverts will work because they generally produce very little ammonia. The reason a dead shrimp works is because it produces ammonia as it decays.
