If there are tons of plants, they eat the ammonia up.

Tom's method of heavily planting can work but it's not what I would consider ideal for newbies. Not when one can cycle without livestock and without cramming a tank completely full of plants by using an ammonia source.

It's absolutely not a method I would use (I wouldn't use it for any reason - I prefer mature tanks) for sensitive livestock at all.

I'd like to know too. Maybe a heavily planted tank has little room for fish -> bio-load won't be high?
