If you have no fish you can dose the ammo again then test tomorrow. If it chews up all the ammo and trites in a day it's cycled. That's the sure way to tell

Also keep an eye on your ph. If you notice a big drop over a day do a small water change . On my recent cycle I was stuck on trites. One day my ph dropped so I did a Pwc. It gave things a little kick start.
