Possible. Did you also check Nitrite and Nitrate levels? The nitrite may still be high, and dangerous.

Also possible... If you have 11 tiny fish (neon tetras, guppies), and you don't feed them excessively, they may not have affected the ammonia in your tank hugely, especially if you have a biowheel/biowheels. That happened to me with my 55G. I never had an ammonia spike!!! I just kept 15-20 zebra danios to cycle it, and added other fish after 2 weeks (all nitrogen levels were low-->0) and the tank has been fine since.

All pretty small fish. It's quite possible that they just haven't bio-loaded your aquarium to the maximum. Do you have a biowheel/biowheels?
