Cycled Tank Definition
OK - so a buddy and I were discussing tank cycling and we discovered that
the term is not well defined. So, in response to our find, I would like to

-Is a cycled tank one that has just been set-up, new water, but
contains a sponge from a cycled
-Does a cycling tank _need_ plants, do they help the process be
completed faster, are there
disadvantages to cycling with plants?
Let's discuss this point because I am sure that most of us have differing
responses to the proposed question. This is a serious post, so, serious
responses only please.
Tired of stupid, non-plant, argumenative threads.
