API Master Kit readings for Tetra?

I just tested my water for the first time with an API Master Kit. I was using test strips. My readings were; Nitrate 5.0 ppm... Nitrite 0 ppm... Ammonia was hard for me to read but somewhere between 0 ppm to .25 ppm... PH was 7.6 or a little less... Are these ok? Or should I do something. My tank is a 2 3/4 gal & I've had it 1 1/2 months. I take out & replace 1-2 quarts of water every couple of weeks. I'm setting up another tank for my guy pretty soon.... Thanks! Bill

Those are good numbers and the tank sounds to be running well.
