Default Yeast starter decant question

First time trying the "decanting method" with starter. I have had my starter out at room temp now for 36 hours and the yeast doesnt seem to be dropping. Is it ok to put it in fridge or should i wait? I will be brewing tomorrow, pitching tomorrow night. I want to make sure I give it enough time in the fridge to drop out so I can decant without loosing yeast.

Fridge now is fine; I usually do so after 24 hours.

Just make sure it's sealed well since your fridge is a bacteria breeding ground.

Just put a sanitized rubber band on the current foil and you should be fine.
