Drift wood

Ok so I walk into petland today and they convinced me I just had to have some drift would that was already set up in there tanks. They told me this would give me alot of beneficial bacteria . So I bought it 2 pieces looks huge in my 30g tank. But will look cine in my 75 once set up. So is driftwood as good as they say plus I brought up the idea that nutrafine cycle wasn't all it's cracked up to be they said o yes it is. I told them that I don't know how bacteria could live trapped in a bottle for so long and they disagree. So any opinions

Adding driftwood from an established tank pretty much accomplishes the same thing as adding filter media from an established tank: You add beneficial bacteria.

I haven't used any cycling products like Cycle, but I've read enough negative things about them that I really don't feel like wasting money on it.
