Just want to ensure you are fathoming this correctly. Even if you "cycle" a tank with ammonia, you can only add a few fish at a time. Too many will overload the bacteria and cause what we term a mini-cycle with a spike in ammonia first, then nitrite.
But having some fast growing live plants can eliminate this completely. Just have lots of plants, even if they are added at the same time as the fish.
