You could use all that stuff for fishless cycling fuel couldn't you?

If you wanted to also pollute the tank at the same time. A cocktail shrimp in pantyhose is more controllable.

If the idea is for organic matter to decompose so the BB can take hold, what difference does it make?
Dead shrimp are going to pollute the tank just as well.
If it is a fishless cycle, why concern yourself about controlling anything, just throw it in there and let it do it's thing for the next six weeks.

Other than convenience, there really is no difference.
