OK I just "manned up" and sucked on the tubing, getting 95% of the water out... do you think that's good enough?
I hope to get the water back in the same way: a clean bucket in my tub w/water running into it + sucking on it (there's no fish poop on it yet, so I'm less grossed out.

What is a "Silent Cycle"?

The silent cycle is the type of cycle you will do with heavy planted and soil based systems. The plant themselves have bacteria-anything organic for that matter-either contain or create bacteria to either start the process or to feed the bacteria. You don't need or want to cycle the traditional way with heavy planted tanks-especially soil based planted tanks-you can stall the cycling process and/or cause chemical reactions that are not healthy for the tank/plants.
