That's the way I have cycled tanks in and had no Problems.

What do you mean that fish being painted dosent hurt them? You are obviously aren't very informed. Just look up tattooed fish and tell me that those don't look painful. The cycling style that I described is used by all of the most reputable people on this site and is the safest way to do it.

Yup. What they do to "paint" fish is first soak them in some sort of acid or caustic solution that melts their slimecoat off. Then they dip the fish in dye. Then they dip the fish in artificial slime coat. Very stressful. And completely pointless.

But it's a very 1982 way to cycle a tank. If you can cycle it without harming or endangering any fish, why wouldn't you? Best case scenario for fish in cycling, fish get severely burned and inflamed gills due to ammonia in the tank. Not worth it IMO.
