Fishless cycling can typically take about a month (or longer). So there's plenty of biofilm.

Many fish - along with nearly all invertebrates - are so sensitive to ammonia and nitrite that it's not ideal to house them in a tank that has any trace of either. Which is why the fishless cycle is handy and humane.
