You must add a source of ammonia, but you've already done that. Then you let it run for a while and it does everything itself. You need to buy a liquid master test kit, preferably API. Pretty much everyone here uses that one. And it will test for ammonia, nitrite, and nitrates. Ammonia and nitrites are deadly to your fish so watch out. If you want your fish to survive you'll have to be doing daily small water changes to keep ammonia levels safe. I'm sorry to say this, but I doubt your fry will make it.
or you could try biospira lol xD youll prob end up using the whole bottle this will speed up the process it works for me x3 idk if itll work for you but since their saying its going to die anyway the best bet is to try a bottle of biospira(ALL OF IT) depending on the tank like one small bottle is for a 30gallon so if you get a medium itll be for a 50gallon :3 or so though it costs 10dollars so its better to try also try adding some plants and feed the fish microscopic food
