Cycling LR that has been cycled before

I have in my 12 gallon tank LR that was purchased at a store that has been in the display tank for a few months. I have started to cycle it just to be on the safe side for about 5 days. My nitrite and ammonia are 0, but nitrate is 20. Should I keep cycling it until nitrate goes down or is it cool to leave as is?

nitrates probably wont ever go to 0 without a massive algae bloom or water changes. wait maybe a week and see if any ammonia develops, if not then youre good to go. the only cycle would result from die off from moving it.
