Just keep an eye (daily) on your parameters, and when ammonia and nitrite reach zero, your cycle is done. Maybe you should start regular water changes until Ammonia and Nitrites disappear. I think that 25% or less (last time the damsel stressed, so maybe start with 10% a day) shoud suffice.
M'kay and i do get tests done at the store for everything, it just always matches wht i get at home
