No one is arguing that point. Please re-read our comments.

Bacteria exist on everything but that doesn't mean a tank is cycled as soon as you throw in a bunch of plants. It just means the plant load can process all of the ammonia (often referred to as a silent cycle). It doesn't mean filter media is established with bacterial colonies or that biofilm has developed on all surfaces within a tank.
