Are you in the cycle phase? I'm not fully understanding your question.

Waiting 30 days without feeding the tank an ammonia source will not do much of anything


What exactly are you asking here?

Cycle it? Just let it be, some keep the lights off. You can add fish food although some frown on that method or you can add a shrimp as in raw shrimp as your ammonia source. Get yourself at the least the API saltwater test kit and start testing. Salinity is good but there are a bunch more parameters your gonna need to check. Stock?

That's get you cycled and ready first. If I missed on things which I'm sure I did. I know the great members here will chime in to lend a helping fin.
