Just keep measuring and keeping the ammonia up? Until it gets to 0 after 24 hours? Thank you all who have been following this and helping me out!

personally I give it a few days of consistent zeroing out before I consider a tank cycled. Your nitrAtes should also spike around the time ammonia/nitrites zero out so you will probably have to do a water change to bring the nitrates down to <20.
