I have 0 ammonia and 0 nitrite and about 5ppm nitrate. I guess its cycled. My question is should I add a bit of ammonia to feed the bacteria since I won't be getting any fish until nest weekend? TY

Yes, continue feeding ammonia.

I’ve always dosed ammonia up until about 24-36 hours before stocking. Allow ammonia to go to zero, do a large water change and then start stocking.

Depending on what you dosed ammonia to and your planned stock, you may need to stock slowly.
