Putting anything in while your tank is cycling is just asking for trouble

Do yourself and the critters a favor and just wait for it to be cycled before adding anything

Ya anything will die. This hobby is about being patient. You need to die. Also, snails and hermits eat. And would have nothing to eat. Just wait.

OP needs to die?

OP, if you wait it out, you'll save tons of time energy and money from doing water changes daily. Which you definitely will neeed to do to keep whatever is in your tank alive. Google "fishless cycling " then compare to "fish in cycling " . Decide which Is for you, and carry on. Good luck!
