Hm, I'm not sure. I haven't tried doing a fishless cycle with fish food. I'm not sure how long it takes to decompose. You could test tonight (which would be 24 hours) and see how high your ammonia level is. Also using the fish food method can be very messy. How long would it be until you can get some pure ammonia?
