Water changing and cycling are best viewed as COMPLETELY different things. In all honesty, the only way to PREVENT cycling is to do a 100% water change every day and clean out the container with HOT, chlorinated water; not use gravel; and treat any decorations the same as the container.
Why anyone would seek to AVOID the benefits of nitrifying bacteria is really beyond my comprehension. They live in the gravel, on the decorations, on the sides of your aquarium, pretty much anywhere with a surface area (which equates to a level of oxygen exchange). Filters harbor more of these bacteria, since their very nature brings on a water flow, which means more oxygen exchange.
When I think of people talking about "not cycling", for some reason I imagine you sitting there with an eye-dropper full of liquid arsenic, slowly dripping it into your mouth in hopes that you'll do it slow enough that it won't kill you. I imagine it's POSSIBLE to do it without reaching a lethal dose, but why would you want to?
