Correct. Since your ammonia and nitrites will be at 0 only should there be nitrates which you take out with water change. THEN you are ready. Just got to get those nitrites to show up and then drop. This is probably the longest part of cycling, the nitrites.

Good luck

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.

Have you had a nitrite reading yet? As in any time since you started?
If not you probably need to re dose the ammonia and keep going...
