No, if you are doing a "fish-in" water cycle you have to do water changes to prevent a deadly build up of ammonia.

I believe that the daily water changes of a fish-in cycle actual impede the tanks ability to Cycle...Its much better to do a heavy dose of Prime instead of a water change

Shane, you're getting a tad out of control starting all these new threads about basically the same thing. It gets really confusing for all of us if we haven't already read the responses you've received about this tank.

How so? I don't think it'd be wise to put that much faith in a product.
