After Cycle, Before Fish

I'm cycling a 10 gallon right now. I am probably ordering my fish and plants online, so when my cycle is finished, there will be a time laps before these are added. How much ammonia should I put through my tank, before I get my fish, to keep my bacteria alive. And would the same hold true, if I got my plants before the fish. Thanks

Standard 10 Gallon (20 x12x12).
Low tech, Sand substrate.
Eheim 2211, and Aqueon Quietflow 10.
Finnex Stingray LED, 20" above substrate
2 Anubias Nana Petite, Christmas moss.
4 Halequin Rasborahs, 5 RCS.

Continue to add ammonia either once a day to 3ppm or else twice a day to 1 ppm (this is easier on the plants).
