Brown Algea going into remission

I have 20 lbs of live rock, live sand, a 3" Sebae Anenome and a pair of true Perculas. My brown is finally clearing, but have had a slight increase in both nitrates and nitrites. Everything else including ammonia in perfect. Temp, Ph, salinity are dead on. Is this normal when the algea dies? I did a 25% change with no change in levels. Not high enough to be overly concerned, but with a small tank it wouldn't take much to throw it way off. Sorry new to saltwater...Jeff
