I have no plans for fish for a week or two at least. Just wanted something I can look at. And to test the waters so to speak.

I'd still add some ammonia source, even if just some flakes. Some may say its not necessary, but if you're cycled it won't hurt a thing. Just simulating the fish that are gonna go in there anyhow, so if they take the ammonia from the flakes, it'll be ready for the ammonia from the fish. Piece of mind starting up a new tank is always good, especially since you don't plan on adding fish right away anyhow.

Not trying to start anything here but his ammonia source is still die off from his lr that was not fed ammonia. That stuff is still dying and feeding other bacteria.

That being said there is no harm in adding an ammonia source and waiting a day, at the same time a cycled tank is a cycled tank...
