What's your PH normally? Mid 6-s is getting a bit low for the bacteria. I'd do a full water change to get PH back up then dose ammonia to 4 again and see what happens in 24 hours. No2 going to 0 is usually a good sign but let's dose for a few more days to be sure; if it stays at 0 then I'd say you're ready for fish.
