Was a source of ammonia added i.e. LR, LR die off, shrimp, waste, anything of that nature. If not then you would not see a cycle as it has not happened yet.

You can always toss some fish food in or something of that nature.

Just a guess, but probably what GhostKnife mentioned... not enough of anything to start the cycle.
