Cycling planted tanks
#1
Interesting one seen a mixed bag on this one of die hard ammonia cycle vs the plant cycle fans.  So i am after some opinions main sources straight off hand if people want to read or watch are:

https://www.ukaps.org/forum/threads/do-i...ank.48450/
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=guT1GKJ7...b-&index=5

So the question is can you cycle a tank using plants and fertilizer to cycle a tank to hold fish stock?  yes this process is longer as it is depending on plant growth so could take up to 6 weeks.  My understanding is dosing high 4 ppm of ammonia can be harmful to plants and is not 100% required if planted heavily.  Would like to see people opinion on this and if anyone has experience with doing a plant cycle as spoken about above.
