The question for me is why do you want to do fishless cycling. The only motivation I can see is if one wants to dump a high stocking level worth of fish into the tank to start. But that still seems risky to me.

Listen to Tom and the others, add mulm, gravel from established tanks, the water squeezed from a mature sponge filter, etc, to jump start the biofilter. Add a low bio load in terms of fish, and keep up with the water changes. That way you have fish from the get go, and less worries
