Is good idea to test it each day. Depending on how much seed material you used,and how many fish you added or other source of ammonia for bacteria to feed on, You may not see a rise in ammonia or nitrites. If you do,, simply perform a water change. as long as seed material was placed directly from existing tank into the new tank, and food (ie) ammonia is available,,the bacteria will continue to grow and the maturing process will be reduced accordingly. Could be a week, could be days. Just test the water daily and keep an eye on the fish for any signs of distress if fish are in the tank. don't use too many fish ,or too much food to feed the bacteria.
