I cycled now what

Ok so i have cycling for almost 6 weeks (had to move the tank once). Ammonia is 0, trites 0, and trates between 5ppm and 10ppm. I have 2 turbo snails in there right now munching on some algae. Will they be enough to keep the cycle until my RO DI unit gets ship from ebayland? If not how can I keep my cycle going?

Feed the tank some flake food. Doesn't take much but will help keep things going.

+1, Add some flake food, it will breakdown and add the ammonia that your tank needs to sustain it's good bacteria.
