Great, but here's some things to consider:
In a brand new, uncycled, unseeded, just added first fish tank, it usually takes about 7 days for the ammonia to reach a readable amount on most test kits.
What I would do, is to keep testing ammonia daily to make sure it does not rise. If it should rise, either seed the tank from an established tank or purchase a nitrifying bacteria culture at your local store ( not online cause by then time will be of the essence) to ensure that the ammonia level does reach toxic levels. If it should reach toxic levels, be prepared to do major water changes until you get your beneficials established .
The good news is that right now, things are fine. The bad news is that you are
not out of the woods just yet.
Hope it all works out.
