Once you did that, you don't need plants to help cycle your tank.
    You can't be serious... a fully cycled tank just by using a sponge from an already fully cycled tank? I highly doubt it. You might have a fully mature sponge filter full of bacteria, but the tank will still go through the entire tank cycling process... A smaller tank will certainly cycle faster, but adding a small sponge filter will not instantly make a 60G tank fully cycled. I believe you are the one misinformed. This is quite possibly one of the most nonsensical things I've ever read.

    Edit: I deleted the stuff I post. Instead of inflaming this thread. I'll just say.
    "No kidding bud, it's true. But I would use a bit of common sense about sticking a small sponge that couldn't handle the bioload of a 60G into a 60G tank though. I don't know why anybody would do that."
