Sounds like it to me. My ammonia only became trace levels before zeroing out, my nitrates actually showed up like 2 days after my nitrites did and after that all they did was rise and rise until nitrites slowly fell then zeroed out. Every tank is different but that's what happened with mine.

The only issue with keeping fish that have max sizes that arent suitable for the tank they are currently is you risk stunting their growth... But their insides keep growing even though the fish doesn't increase in size. So I would say as soon as your able to get a bigger tank and comfortably (by comfortably i mean financially comfortable) maintain it, do it.
