I just figured by now with them living in there and with all the poo there should enough of a cycle going.
Enough of a cycle for what? The snails would represent a VERY small bio-load and as such,,it would not take much in the way of fishes to create levels of ammonia or nitrites that could become dangerous to any fishes added in excess of what the snails have been contributing in the way of waste, and too much food fed to the tank can create toxic conditions from the get go.
You really need a filter ,for this area (filter)is where the majority of bacteria colonize.
When you get your new filter..borrowing some filter material from another tank? would speed the (cycling) of the 75 gal.
