Not really. You will need to do lots of water changes which will destroy the cycle. If you breed in a big tank cycled tank/water might reduce water changes during the first week but eventually you will need to reduce stunting hormones.

Add lots of plants and run a corner filter for a couple data before adding your pair. The plants will create food for babies and the filter will become full of good bacteria and help keep ammonia/nitrite/nitrate levels down. For more info on tank cycling... Google the nitrogen cycle. It will help you understand. But not only is the tank prettier with plants... It is healthier.
