With a low bioload, and lots of fast growing plants, it doesn't need to
cycle. The plants will directly consume any ammonia and/or nitrites.
I never cycled my big 75g tank. I just set up the tank, adding lots of
plants, and let them go for a month. Then I started adding fish.
Never saw any type of ammonia or nitrite or nitrate.
