Sorry, but this seems like a crazy setup and a horrible way to cycle a tank!!!!
He is just doing it old school. That is pretty much how we all did it back in the day. One of my first salt tanks was a 150 gallon that I pretty much cycles exactly like that. Sometimes people would cycle the tank using fresh water and goldfish then ditch the goldfish, add salt, and go from there.
