When you ammonia and nitrite read zero consistently and you have nitrates, your tank will have finished cycling.

Even though I may presumably be introducing NH4 into the water every time I do a PWC? Hoping my pregnant guppy isn't dead when i get home later...

The ammonia in your tap will get consumed by the bacteria once the tank is established. I bet your tap doesn't have that much either, probably due to the inaccurate and hard to read test strips.

I too would be amazed if your tap water had ammonia in it.
