What you are experiencing is a Fish-In Cycle. You get the Ammonia from the Fish. You don't have to Cycle. It's just an opportunity to make the Tank more stable and almost Ammonia-Free. A Fish-In Cycle is just a Cycle but with Fish. However, the Fish would most likely be stressed because of the needed Water Perimeters. To do a Fishless Cycle, the source of Ammonia would be a lot of things. Fish Food is most common. I *think* there is a Sticky about the Fishless and Fish-In Cycle.
