Seeded tank fish food cycling.

So I seeded the tank, added fish food (a pinch abut the amount I'd usually feed my fish). How soon before testing for ammonia? Can I use goldfish food? I have a big tub from when we had goldfish that's still in date that I'd rather use than the tropical flakes I have because of the expense.

Thanks for answering more of my annoying cycling questions :)

You can use finely ground goldfish food for the organic, however, there are safer, better and easier methods to establish the cycle....

What size tank, type of filter, substrate, what is the finial stocking plan, any plans for live plants and what kind of testing products are you using....
