And I mean clearing the ammonia within that amount of time for a week straight before adding fish, just to be sure.

On the ammonia, i have not read of any timeline for this. Nitrosomonas bacteria require approximately 9 hours to divide if ammon ia is present beyond their numbers. Various factors affect this. You might find some background here:

Something we all need to remember: The fish you've acquired was quite happy not being owned by you, minding its own business. If you’re going to take it under your wing then you’re responsible for it. Every aspect of its life is under your control, from water quality and temperature to swimming space. [Nathan Hill in PFK]
