i disagree 100%.
first, how will you know the cycle is complete without testing. second, if anything ever looks out of whack its good to do a test to see what the issue is and how to address it. third this was posted in saltwater so im only going to assume its for a saltwater tank which means you will need to also test mag, alk, ca, pH AT THE MINIMUM, besides the standard ammonia, nitrite, nitrate.
