Cycling New 29 Gal. tank?

Okay so i have 29glass aquarium with hood (2 hand not that great of condition). I have 2 Tetra Internal 10-30 Filters and a Tetra Submersible 10-30 heater. Natural Colored River Pebbles and some artificial plants, that you see in the pick and a magnetic algae scraper and thermometer. I have Aqua safe water conditioner, Start-zyme, Wardley food, api master test kit, and some ammonia hydroxide from a local store. It doesn't foam anymore then water, and isn't anymore slippery than water (not like dish detergents). Label only says ammonia hydroxide with no phosphorous. I have also been feeding the tank every 12 hours 2-3 flakes for about a week. I followed the directions on start-zyme and i dose it again on the 16.I have No fish in the tank. So i would appreciate some major help i had another thread open but no one was posting on it anymore so i decided to open this one hope that's not a no no. I have a Few questions what should my next step be? is or does that ammonia sound any good? its a surfine product if anyone can finde anything on it that would be great.

I am closing this thread because the other 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 youíre going to take it under your wing then youíre responsible for it. Every aspect of its life is under your control, from water quality and temperature to swimming space. [Nathan Hill in PFK]
