do they help in the cycling process? is it ok to have them while cycling? if so, what else can i use in my nano tank while it is cycling?

When I cycled I had a bizillion hitchhikers, and probably 80% of them survived. My peanut worm, bristles, about 10 hermits (all really small at the time) and even a purple shroom. They are all still alive.


Point being, hitchhikers for the most part will be fine, but don't add anything...
