What kind of cycling are you doing. . . ? Fish-in or fish-less cycle? Is there any live plants in there?

Make sure to test for ammonia everyday and nitrites every few days. . .

What'll you'll experience is a silent cycle, basically the plants will suck up all the ammonia so you won't get a reading, the same thing with nitrates.

Live plants if they're doing they're job they will use up the ammonia before it gets converted into nitrate. . Don't worry about this.

Keep us updated. . If your ammonia and nitrite reading ever hits 0.25ppm or more do a water change.
